Who We Are
CEO and owner Paige C. Rasmussen created CDE in 2010 to provide virtual strategies to clients who had unique projects that needed outstanding service with integrity. She is committed to transparency and mutual wins for clients and support personnel. Focusing on high quality deliverables and personalized customer service, Ms. Rasmussen built a reputation for providing experienced, well-adjusted and well-rounded professionals dedicated to the core values of CDE. In the years since, CDE has grown its services to include direct hire and temp-to-perm staff augmentation to give client on-site support of team- and deliverable-focused experts.
Today, CDE has three core focus areas that cover our projects and services offered: Management Consulting, Integrated Communications, and Research and Analysis. Our clients include large, well-known companies, and fellow small businesses, government organizations, as well as non-profit organizations. CDE has provided support for programs supporting the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Intelligence Community, not-for-profits, and other domestic and international commercial entities ranging from large integrators to boutique firms.
At CDE, no matter the mission or deliverable, we tailor our approach to providing solutions based on individual customer needs. Please contact us below for information regarding our services or partnership opportunities with CDE.
We understand the challenges that face leaders, entrepreneurs, career professionals, and students in an ever-changing marketplace. As such, our prime areas of community outreach services are: facilitating network opportunities for fellow small-owned business; resume writing, help with contracts and business coaching specifically for veterans and women; and mentoring and providing learning experiences for youth in science and technology. Below are examples of some of these experiences supported by CDE.
Demystifying Work Transition for Veterans
Growing up in a family with generations of military service dating back to the Revolutionary War, and as the as the daughter of two Marines, Ms. Rasmussen established that part of our company's corporate outreach would be to give back to retired/soon to retire service members. She has personally spoken at Transition Assistance Programs (TAPs) and CDE personnel provide free resume writing for veterans. Through one-on-one conversations, CDE demystifies the process of applying to and performance expectations in industry jobs and consultant positions.
Business, Non-Profit, and Student Development
Ms. Rasmussen regularly volunteers her time and expertise as a mentor. She served as the Industry Chair on the Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce Government Contracting Committee from 2013-2015, served on the Girls in Technology Committee of Women in Technology from 2015 to 2016, is on the board of Our Heroes Inc., a equine therapy and large animal rescue farm, and is a proud supporter of the Youth Technology Network, which selected CDE to manage the requirements and execution of re-developing an RV into a mobile Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) lab serving disadvantaged youth.
