Jim Garrettson, founder and CEO of Executive Mosaic, presented Paul Dillahay, president and CEO of NCI Information Systems, his second Wash100 Award on Monday.
His first Wash100 Award win came in 2017 after he was appointed NCI’s president and CEO in Nov. 2016. Since then, Dillahay has helped grow the company’s IT and engineering platform and helped secure multiple contracts to develop IT and command, control, communications, computers and intelligence implementations for federal agencies and across industry.
Most notably, Dillahay supervised a potential $269.9 million contract with DISA in Oct. 2019. Under the potential four-year prime contract, Dillahay will continue to lead NCI’s efforts to implement the latest technologies, simplify operations and improve efficiencies to help manage the Department of Defense (DoD) enterprise IT infrastructure.
“We will implement new and innovative technologies, including our NCI Shai framework, to reduce administrative burden, automate repetitive tasks and share knowledge across the enterprise that will enable our team to deliver unparalleled support to JSP customers,” Dillahay added.
Through the valuable contracts NCI has received, the company has expanded their platform, enablinging NCI to discuss their larger technological innovations. Dillahay has continuously improved NCI’s AI products since his appointment. In July 2019, he advocated for AI and IT integration within the federal government.
“We’re trying to drive value for our existing customers…We’re also partnering with some of the larger integrators to serve new customers,” Dillahay said. “When you have this type of innovation, you can get in front of the market, explain the technology to customers and provide them with effective use cases. That’s going to make adoption more likely for us going forward,” he concluded.
Executive Mosaic applauds NCI and Paul Dillahay for his 2020 Wash100 Award. Dillahay’s dedication for advancing AI technologies and expansion of the company through major contract awards prove his status in the GovCon industry.
