David Wajsgras and Tiffanny Gates Continue to Battle Over First Place, Michael Corkery Climbs Rankings, Wash100 Voting Ends on Tuesday

With only five days left to vote, the race for first place in the Wash100 rankings remains white-hot as the finish line approaches on April 30th. David Wajsgras of Raytheon took first place from Tiffanny Gates of Novetta, Steve Harris of Dell EMC Federal and Teresa Carlson of Amazon Web Services climbed the rankings and the GovCon community came out in droves for Craig Abod of Carahsoft. However, another week has passed and the final days of Wash100 voting will continue to be unpredictable heading to the April 30th finish line. You can cast your vote here.

After a chaotic week for the top three, David Wajsgras, Tiffanny Gates and Jill Singer of AT&T remain in first, second and third place respectively. Wajsgras is holding onto his lead by less than 100 votes. With five days remaining to vote, the race to first place will come down to the wire.

Michael Corkery of Deltek received an overwhelming number of votes from the GovCon community and broke through to fourth place in the rankings this week. John Harris of Raytheon continues his persistence and climbed another spot into fifth place and the top five.

Teresa Carlson dropped two spots and currently sits in sixth place, but she’s still in the mix along with Thomas Kennedy of Raytheon in seventh and Mac Curtis of Perspecta in eighth place. Steve Harris fell to ninth place in the rankings and Craig Abod sits in 10th place, but remains a potential threat to make a huge impact before the final votes are cast next week.

Outside of the top ten, Xavier Williams of AT&T sits at eleventh place. SAIC’s bad luck continues as both Nazzic Keene and Tony Moraco are now in the twelfth and thirteenth spots respectively. David Levy of Amazon Web Services, Gwynne Shotwell of SpaceX, Marillyn Hewson of Lockheed Martin and Leanne Caret of Boeing are all still threats heading towards the April 30th deadline. Any one of them could rally with the GovCon community behind them.

To date, over 18,000 votes have been cast for the top 30 GovCon executives in the Wash100 voting. If you’ve been waiting to make your vote count at the end, the time to vote is now. Your vote could be the difference between first and second place for Gates, Wajsgras or another GovCon executive threatening to become the official winner of the 2019 Wash100 rankings.
