Bob Dacanay, Founder and Chairman
“Our ability to improve the businesses of our clients rests on the knowledge, motivation, and respect of our people.”
When Bob founded Primescape Solutions, Inc., in 1998, he was guided by a vision: To create a company totally committed to the success of the client. How was he to achieve this?

To do this, he created a set of core values for Primescape employees: integrity, mutual respect, teamwork, creativity and innovation.
During the intervening years, Bob has overseen Primescape’s growth from being a company with 2 employees to one that has made the Inc 500 Fastest Growing Companies, the Washington Technology Fast 50 Government Contractors, and the FedSource Top 25 Small Businesses.
