Executive Mosaic, Tysons Corner, VA March 17, 2016 — Leidos Holdings CEO Roger Krone has been inducted into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 list of the most influential leaders in GovCon for his leadership in growth strategy and financial performance.
The Wash100 is the premier group of private and public sector leaders selected by Executive Mosaic’s organizational and editorial leadership as the most influential voices in the GovCon sector and recognized for their leadership, vision, innovation, reliability, and achievement.
Krone led Leidos through two significant moves in 2015; the $5 billion merger with Lockheed Martin‘s government information technology and services businesses and the acquisition of the $4.3 billion military health record contract alongside Cerner and Accenture.
“Adding IS&GS to Leidos brings together technical capabilities and customer relationships across defense, civilian, government, health, intelligence and cyber markets, ” Krone told investors regarding the merger.
Shares in Leidos increased by 5 percent when the Defense Department announced the Defense Healthcare Management System Modernization contract award.
Krone joined Leidos in July 2014 as chief executive after six years of heading Boeing‘s network and space systems unit.
“The resilient GovCon market is primed for an exciting year of growth and recovery in 2016. The leaders that will demonstrate skills in leadership, innovation, reliability, achievement, and vision are included in our selection of this year’s 2016 Wash100 awards, ” said Jim Garrettson, President and Founder of Executive Mosaic.
