Who is ClearShark?

ClearShark is a small business founded in 2001 and headquartered in Hanover, MD. As a trusted advisor to the world’s largest and most secure networks, we deliver innovative solutions and exceptional professional services as well as provide expertise in government contracting.

Our first-class engineering team is comprised of mission-focused, results-driven SMEs from the IC, DOD, and civilian government agencies who have the expertise and customer relationships to recognize opportunities and engage in every step of the sales cycle, from inception to post-sales professional services.

Our lean line card enables us to make significant investments in our partnerships with best-of-breed, disruptive technologies. We believe in our technologies, and we are recognized as a top partner for our strategic vendors.


Establishing ClearShark

In 2001, Martin Bentz & Kefton Schermerhorn established ClearShark and began providing storage and architecture expertise to commercial projects, while establishing a solid service presence within the Intelligence Community (IC). Within a couple of years, additional storage engineers had been hired, and the Department of Defense became the sole focus for ClearShark’s consulting services. By 2005, strategic vendors such as NetApp, VMware, and Microsoft were in place, and ClearShark created a reseller business unit, providing custom business solutions to the IC.


Tech World Growth

Throughout the past several years, ClearShark has increased its footprint in the technological world, experiencing consistent and strong growth in providing cutting-edge solutions for our government customers and working closely with and partnering with industry leaders in storage, networking, virtualization, and cybersecurity.
