The report shows that the company operates under Standard Industrial Code 541600, meaning it consults with organizations on “management, environmental, scientific and technical issues.” The filing was authorized by Gail Reed. It is unknown whether this person has a connection to Sean Reed, whom Kent’s campaign previously said was Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC’s CEO.
Puzzlement surrounding the company increased rather than eased, however, since its benefit plan report lists a phone number for Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC that matches a company called Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC, a “global security, turn-key logistics, remote housing and life-support” firm, according to Datanyze.com.
Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC lists three offices, one of which matches the address listed for Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC: 13800 Coppermine Road, Suite 399, Herndon, Va. Torres’ other two offices are in Falls Church, Va. On Jan. 10, the company moved from Falls Church, Va., to Chantilly, Va.
There are Twitter and Facebook accounts for Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC, both of which appear to be inactive.
Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions LLC operated under this name from Nov. 4, 2010, to June 26, 2020, until changing its name to Continuity Global Solutions LLC on June 26, 2020, according to the Virginia State Corporation Commission. On Jan. 4, 2021, it created a fictitious name, or a name a business uses instead of its legal name, Torres Advanced Enterprise Solution LLC.
