Cape Fox Year is delighted to debut its Year-in-Review for 2022. The past year was busy, exciting, successful, and welcoming. Commercially, we saw a return of a tourist season, a new business website, and award wins for our commercial businesses. For the Cape Fox Federal Contracting Group (FCG), we debuted a federal subsidiary, gained many new contracts and customers, and saw additional recognition and growth throughout the year.

Everyone at the company contributes daily to the company’s success and any achievements earned. Team Cape Fox has become an industry leader with the force of a unified group of individuals who have led us into the future. The company’s success is our success, and I delight in reviewing our accomplishments from 2022:
