"Ishpi," in the Anishinaabe or Chippewa language, means to move forward, or to persevere; CEO Noah Leask (pictured third from the right) does his best to instill this winning attitude into his employees, who are responsible for helping our Armed Forces dominate the information battlefield with IT and logistics support. "Nothing is impossible if you have the will to make it happen," he says. "If you really want something, you have to plan, act on your plan, and work hard to make it a reality."
