Jim Garrettson, president and CEO of Executive Mosaic, a leading media and events hosting company in the government contracting market, on Tuesday presented Terry Hagen, president of Jacobsâ aerospace & technology division, with his 2018 Wash 100 award.
The Wash100, now in its fifth annual year, recognizes the most influential and impactful executives in the defense sector, as selected by Executive Mosaicâs organizational and editorial leadership. Representing the premier private and public sector executives in the GovCon industry, these individuals demonstrate superior leadership, innovation, reliability, achievement and vision.
A first-time inductee, Hagen was recognized for his strategic mergers and acquisitions management, evidenced by his spearheading of Jacobsâ $3.27 billion purchase of CH2M in December. Jacobs said the combined firm, valued at $15 billion, will increase its government, infrastructure and industrial professional services offerings. Following the completed transaction, Jacobs streamlined its businesses into three divisions; global industrial, buildings and infrastructure; aerospace and technology; and global petroleum and chemicals.
