Weekly Roundup

February 6 – February 10 2017

A Note From Our President & Founder Jim Garrettson

We are two weeks into the rollout of Executive Mosaic’s fourth annual Wash100 class of inductees and this year’s edition has been our highest-profile yet with increased reader participation and feedback.

As detailed both in our initial launch and this space, the Wash100 is a cavalcade of leaders Executive Mosaic’s editorial and organizational leadership deemed to be Government Contracting’s Most Influential Voices.

This esteemed group of executives at the intersection of government and business has trended on Twitter via posts with the #Wash100 hashtag by companies with leaders on this year’s list and sometimes the inductees themselves.

Our Wash100.com landing page includes our full list of selections, links to the individual articles our media team has published to date and “Coming Soon” messages over those profiles to come.

To make our site interactive, we also have an extra thumbs-up button on each inductee’s headshot for users to “Like” the 10 executives of their choice.
