This Week’s Wash100 Top Movers: GovCon Executives Outpace Government Counterparts
Jim Garrettson, Executive Mosaic CEO
We’re now six weeks into the 5th Annual Wash100 season and this week GovCon Executives outpaced Government Executives in the “Movers This Week” category of the popular vote. The top five Movers this past week were all from the private sector, which is a large shift from when we last checked in on the top Wash100 Movers three weeks ago.
The Wash100 popular vote will be open until April 30th, so make sure to get out the vote for the executives you believe will have the greatest impact on the 2018 government contracting marketplace.
The current top five Movers This Week are:
Steve Harris, SVP and general manager of Dell EMC’s federal business, was selected for the 2018 Wash100 for his achievements in driving information technology modernization via innovation in cloud computing products and services. 2018 marks the third consecutive year that Harris has received the Wash100. Over the course of the past week, Harris has garnered 84 votes in the Wash100 popular vote.
