Weekly Roundup February 13 – February 17 2017: Our 4 Four-Time Wash100 Selections & more

Weekly Roundup

February 13 – February 17 2017

A Note From Our President & Founder Jim Garrettson

As part of the continuing rollout of our 2017 Wash100 class, this week we want to highlight a select group of executives who continually shape the government contracting arena’s conversation and narrative.

Executive Mosaic’s editorial staff continues to post individual profiles on our fourth annualWash100 selections to highlight their contributions to the GovCon sector and this year has seen continued growth in stature and visibility across both industry and government.

This year’s group includes four GovCon business leaders that our readers continually highlight to our editorial and organizational leadership team as those with staying power and influence in the arena, and thus have been selected for all four classes.

Leidos CEO Roger Krone and CACI CEO Ken Asbury were chosen for their respective leadership roles over the integration of large transactions that added significant scale to their companies.

Leidos completed its much-anticipated merger with the Lockheed Martin IT segment in August to double in size, while CACI closed its purchase of the L-3 NSS business in February that addedalmost $1 billion in annual revenue.

SAIC CEO Tony Moraco has led the government services contractor since its September 2013 spinoff and 2016 in particular saw the company maintain profitability with three quarterly earnings reports that topped Wall Street’s forecasts.

Investors responded as SAIC’s stock surged 85 percent last year to end 2016 as the GovCon Index’ssecond-best gainer.

Marilyn Crouther will transition to the future “DXC Technology” as its U.S. public sector leader in April after the merger between CSC and HPE’s enterprise services business closes.

Crouther has led the HPE U.S. public sector business for nearly five years and will oversee an almost $3 billion organization at DXC upon the new $26 billion company’s launch in early April.

As a reminder, our Wash100.com landing page displays this year’s full class, links to individual profiles on our inductees and a thumbs-up button for you to “Like” a maximum of 10 leaders.
