20 Years Of Growth and Innovative Workforce Solutions


TDB was founded in Lenexa, Kansas in 1999 by Terry D. Bryan and Laird Simonsboth successful telecommunications executives.

The new business quickly began to garner awards for its rapid growth and exceptional service to the telecommunications industry. Over the course of its first decade, TDB received a number of awards and recognitions.

In 2005, TDB transitioned from a telecommunications services provider to a workforce solution provider focused on the federal government. By August of that same year, TDB had received the first of four GSA supply schedules.
