Odle Management Group
After years of experience managing Job Corps programs in the public and private sector, Lisa Odle felt as though she had the experience and knowledge needed to start her own company. Lisa started Odle Management group in May 2004.
The company received its first government contract from the U.S. Department of Labor in June 2005. Two years later, Odle Management was able to acquire a $6.2 million contract to handle both student enrollment and outplacement services for a number of Job Corps Centers. Odle Management soon had Job Corps contracts in Iowa, Nebraska, North Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, and Michigan.
In August 2009, the firm won certification under the SBA’s 8(a) program, providing access to previously unavailable 8(a) federal set aside contracts.
The firm currently has contracts in Louisville, Kentucky and Long Beach, California which exceed $90 million. The company began with Lisa Odle as the sole employee. Today, Odle Management employs more than 100 people.
