Last week, Executive Mosaic announced its 5th annual list of the most influential voices in the GovCon sector, the Wash100, and commenced the “popular vote” to determine the Top Executives of Consequence. This week, the Wash100 celebration and popular vote continues. If you haven’t voted, you can vote here.

The Wash100 is an annual award given to the premier group of private and public sector leaders selected by Executive Mosaic’s organizational and editorial leadership committee as the most influential leaders in the GovCon sector. The leaders selected for the Wash100 are individuals who have demonstrated the requisite skills of leadership, innovation, reliability, achievement, and vision. 2018 marks the fifth consecutive year that Executive Mosaic has given the Wash100 award and review of past winners will reveal an impressive roster.

Visitors to the Wash100 website can cast up to ten votes for the executives that they believe will have the greatest impact on the GovCon marketplace over the course of 2018. The popular vote is an inclusive element allowing all of industry to have a voice in the Wash100. Executive Mosaic chooses the 100 most influential leaders in GovCon, and then the public can participate in the popular vote to determine the Top Executives of Consequence through April 30, 2018.

Every vote counts, so visit the Wash100 website and vote for your ten favorite executives. You can also share your votes on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.

Congratulations to the 2018 Wash100 recipients!
