Weekly Roundup January 23 – January 27 2017: Meet Our 2017 Wash100 Inductee Class & more

Weekly Roundup

January 23 – January 27 2017

A Note From Our President & Founder Jim Garrettson

It is that time of year again: the time for Executive Mosaic to reveal the executives our editorial and organizational leadership see as the Most Influential Leaders and Voices in government contracting.

Our fourth annual Wash100 award selection officially was announced Thursday and helps to usher in a year that sees the GovCon market positioned to see an exciting year of opportunity.

This premier group represents a cross-section of leaders of consequence from both the public and private sectors that demonstrate achievement, vision and innovation for their company or agency.

We also inducted key thought leaders from the key academic, financial services and professional organizations that many GovCon executives look to as sounding boards on which direction to go.

Throughout the selection process, many of their executive peers contributed feedback and potential nominations for Executive Mosaic’s team to consider in discussions over this year’s class.

The year 2016 in GovCon featured numerous individual- and organizational-level successes that were criteria for the 2017 winners as we also forecast those positioned for a positive year.

We congratulate the executive leaders chosen for this year’s group of inductees, organizations they both lead and represent in the marketplace and finalists.
