In 2011, 2012, and 2013, Inc. Magazine listed Lux as one of America’s fastest growing private companies and, in 2012, named Lux founder and CEO, Mr. Leonard Boyd, one of the Top-10 Black Entrepreneurs. Lux was also honored as a 2012 Top 100 Minority Business Enterprise Award Winner.
Though a NASA intern and Meyerhoff scholar in college, founder Leonard Boyd’s entrepreneurship was really sparked by his passion for music. He had started recording local musicians in Baltimore, Maryland, when a local Government contractor hired him as a sound engineer during a Federal government conference. This experience inspired Mr. Boyd to enroll Lux in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Program. He developed a web-based meetings management application and Lux marketed this with other innovative technology solutions to Federal agencies. Lux’s first prime contract was awarded by NASA to provide support for internships and fellowships aimed at increasing the diversity of NASA’s human capital pipeline. Lux rapidly built a reputation for outstanding professional services, receiving “exceptional” ratings and 100% of the award fee on all performance-based contracts. Lux’s largest client is now the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Mr. Boyd asserts that Lux is “community powered” and encourages participation in the local community. Under his leadership, Lux sponsors a Free Annual Health and Wellness Fair in downtown Silver Spring, MD and gives resources and services to Arcola Elementary School, a local Title 1 school. Lux also donates services to the Dr. Gerald A. Soffen Memorial Fund for the Advancement of Space Science Education, which provides travel grants for students to present their research.
Lux currently provides a comprehensive array of professional services and applications to government agencies and will bring an unmatched degree of expertise to social welfare organizations outside of the federal government who are looking for assistance within the five Practice Areas.
Lux is proud to be a part of the Microsoft Partnership Network and an Amazon Web Services Consulting Partner. Lux is a member of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce.
