Jim Garrettson, president and chief executive officer of Executive Mosaic, a leading media and events hosting company in the government contracting market, on Wednesday presented Craig Abod, president of Carahsoft Technology, with his 2018 Wash 100 award.
The Wash100, now in its fifth annual year, recognizes the most influential and impactful executives in the GovCon industry, as selected by Executive Mosaic’s organizational and editorial leadership. Representing the best of the private and public sector, these individuals demonstrate superior leadership, innovation, reliability, achievement and vision.
Executive Mosaic recognized Abod, who founded Carahsoft in 2004, for his leadership improving information technology services for federal agencies and government customers. Carahsoft has provided IT platforms and support to over 3,000 prime contractors, system integrators, value-added resellers and other channel partners.
In August, The Channel Company named Carahsoft to its 2017 top 500 list of IT solutions providers in North America for the 12th consecutive year. Additionally, Bloomberg Government in September selected the Reston, Va., company to its top 200 2017 list of federal IT vendors, determined by value of fiscal year 2016 unclassified, prime contracts awarded by U.S. agencies.
