Weekly Roundup Feb. 1 – Feb. 5 2016: The 9 Three-Time Wash100 Winners in 2016’s Class & more

Feb. 1 – Feb. 5 2016

A Note From Our President & Founder Jim Garrettson

Last week in this space, we announced the 2016 edition of Executive Mosaic’s annual Wash100 list, our selection of the government contracting arena’s most influential leaders and voices from both the public and private sectors.

This is our third iteration of the Wash100, which has grown in stature and visibility across the GovCon sector and federal agencies that work with some of the world’s and U.S.’ largest contracting firms.

Each year, Executive Mosaic’s organizational and leadership team sits down to choose faces and voices they see as growing in prominence throughout GovCon and to also recognize those with staying power and continued influence on decision makers in the public and private sectors with this year’s class having nine inductees that have made all three iterations of the Wash100.

Frank Kendall, the military’s chief weapons buyer, has made all three Wash100 classes for his influence and profile in the U.S. government’s largest defense programs and efforts to change the processes behind them.

Three-time inductees include CEOs Tony Smeraglinolo of Engility and Tony Moraco of SAIC for their stewardship of relaunched or rebranded government services providers, as well as their leadership roles over M&A deals at their companies that drove the narrative of industry consolidation over the past two years.

Engility bought its neighbor TASC for $1.1 billion and SAIC picked up Scitor for $790 million.

Leidos CEO Roger Krone was chosen in early 2014 for his leadership over Boeing space programs as an executive there, then selected again in 2015 for his transition to the latter company and is a 2016 inductee for his leadership over Leidos’ $5 billion merger with Lockheed Martin’s IT segment.

Ken Asbury, CACI’s chief executive, is another leader at a major player in consolidation and has been selected to all three Wash100 lists for his company’s buys of Six3 and L-3’s services segment.

Marilyn Crouther has been named to all three Wash100 iterations for her leadership over the former Hewlett-Packard U.S. public sector business and its transition to the new Hewlett-Packard Enterprise — one of the world’s largest technology services providers — where she serves as U.S. public sector SVP & GM.

Kay Kapoor leads AT&T’s federal arm as president and is another three-time selection for her role in the telecommunications giant’s push to grow its footprint in the U.S. public sector market.

Al Grasso, the nonprofit MITRE’s CEO, is a three-time awardee for his science and research community prominence and Parsons’ federal lead Mary Ann Hopkins has made each Wash100 class for her leadership over one of the world’s largest engineering, construction and infrastructure services contractors.
