PRESS RELEASE — PSIRCH, Arlington, VA/October 2, 2023 — Following the establishment of its new East Coast location, PSIRCH is proud to announce its new partnership with the University of Maryland’s Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance https://mqa.umd.edu/ and has now joined the prestigious alliance as its newest member.
Joining the ranks of other members of the alliance, including Johns Hopkins, MITRE, IBM, Lockheed Martin, Booz Allen Hamilton, Amazon Web Services, and others, PSIRCH aptly anticipates a strong positive value in the partnership, and in becoming a duly committed
participant in arguably the strongest ecosystem globally for quantum technology research and development.
PSIRCH, the world’s first quantum technology executive search division of an established firm has already commenced efforts to help grow and develop the prowess of the quantum workforce in this regional hub, engage with local quantum clients and collaborators, and plans to not only continue, but also to ramp up these efforts increasingly over the coming months and years.
“We are delighted to have joined the Mid Atlantic Quantum alliance,” commented PSIRCH’s President, Shai Phillips, “not only because University of Maryland and the State of Maryland have shown enormous dedication, investment, and capability in developing quantum, but also because we feel we have a lot to offer as a steadfast participant, and vice-versa. Maryland has been called the “Capital of Quantum”, and we can see why.”
The Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance, launched in 2020 to accelerate quantum science and enhance the region’s primacy in a field that promises to revolutionize society, brings together world-leading quantum expertise in academia, industry, government agencies, laboratories and research centers with a presence in the region.
Home to the National Quantum Laboratory (QLab), a joint venture between IonQ and the University of Maryland, which officially opened last month, the institution boasts a wealth of talent that feeds into the Mid-Atlantic Quantum Alliance’s network — one of the densest
networks of quantum talent worldwide, with over 400 quantum scientists and engineers, a large pool of entrepreneurs and quantum startups, and the involvement of 15 academic institutions. “For a quantum technology executive search outfit like us, direct access to such a vast and high-caliber talent pool will serve our clients extremely well,” expressed Phillips, “and we’re confident we can transfer that value not only to our clients, but also return it back, with interest, to the ecosystem itself.”
