Prior to that, she was the General Manager of a Seattle-based software development company, where she was instrumental in managing their growth by 200%, creating and managing company infrastructure.
Ms. Albright is a graduate of Old Dominion University and has earned her stripes working her way up the corporate ladder, while interacting with some of today’s most successful entrepreneurs in industries such as: manufacturing, lease finance, public relations, software development, and government contracting.

John Albright – Chief Operating Officer
John Albright, a retired Navy Officer, runs business administration and corporate operations for Tamayo Federal Solutions LLC (TFS).
Mr. Albright is a problem-solver and experienced leader. John has managed large and small organizations throughout his career, both on active duty and as a civilian.
John began his career working at a factory in Rochester, NY at age 15. In less than one year John was promoted to foreman and led a team of workers who varied in background and age up to 50 years old. He accepted a position at Bausch & Lomb at age 17 and was promoted in a few months to a QA position where he doubled the production of his shift. In 1979, John heard the call to service, and joined the Navy, reporting to his first command, USS KIRK in Yokosuka, Japan. After ten successful years as an enlisted sailor, John was commissioned an Ensign/O-1E and was assigned as Executive Officer at a troubled command; PSA Cleveland. This was an O-4 job at a major multi-state organization with responsibility for over $1Billion in annual transactions. His success in this assignment led to a joint-duty assignment as Adjutant for an Army Lieutenant Colonel at a Battalion level command, and then to another XO position at a Navy Engineering command that had been shut down for three years; USS SUSTAIN (AFDM-7), earning the Meritorious Unit Commendation. SUSTAIN had a new crew of 250 untrained personnel led by a small team of professional Navy men and women. Within six months under LT Albright’s leadership SUSTAIN achieved a 600% improvement in productivity. Morale skyrocketed, disciplinary actions almost disappeared, and the Admiral in charge of the Atlantic Fleet claimed the unit’s effectiveness added the equivalent of a Burke class Destroyer to his arsenal and directly contributed to the Navy’s national defense and global humanitarian missions. When Mr. Albright’s tour was up the assignment officer offered him any job in the world. He was contacted by a recruiting command that was the worst in the nation – they needed help from a proven turn-around person. John turned down prestigious assignments with the British Navy in Portsmouth England and XO of SIMA Washington and accepted the demanding officer recruiting department head job in Buffalo. In just 8 months his unit had risen from last place to first; ultimately winning almost every production award available before his departure.
After a 20 year career in the Navy, John worked in Seattle as the Engineering Business Manager for a biometric software development company. He began taking classes in IT systems engineering and earning multiple technical certifications. He was inspired to start his own consulting company, and was contracted to provide TS cleared staffing services to Verizon FNS and others on classified programs for customers including NGA, MDA, DoA, and SOCOM. As a result, John established personal contact with many high-quality candidates in fields such as network engineering, software development, Information Assurance, Continuity of Operations, cyber security, and various related disciplines. His company also provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in IT hardware and software to the new technology testing labs for the U.S. Army and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and to the network engineers of the Army National Guard and the U.S. Air Force.
Mr. Albright is a 1989 graduate of Old Dominion University and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Human Resources. He also holds several technical certifications in Information Technology.
