Jim Garrettson, founder and CEO of Executive Mosaic, presented Stu Shea, chairman, president & CEO of Peraton, his fourth Wash100 Award as part of the 2020 selection on Wednesday.
Executive Mosaic recognizes his leadership and role in the company’s ongoing work with NASA and the advancement of space capabilities as well as supporting U.S. national security. Shea’s previous Wash100 Award was due to his efforts to drive revenue for Peraton and its association with federal agencies, including NASA’s Space Communications Network Services program.
Peraton’s work with NASA continued to progress in 2019. Under Shea’s leadership, the company secured a five-year, $1.8B indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from NASA to provide tracking, telemetry and command services for near-Earth missions in June 2019.
Outside of Peraton’s work with NASA, Shea orchestrated a contract from the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Center Space Enterprise Consortium in November 2019 to develop new solutions for space and electronic warfare as well as build upon Peraton’s ongoing relationship with the military and intelligence sectors. The work will continue through 2021.
As Shea works to increase Peraton’s revenue through his supervision of large contract awards, he also advanced the company’s space and ground operations by managing the acquisition of Solers, a leader in information technology and satellite ground systems, in June 2019.
“Recognition at this elite level is an honor, reaffirming our strong customer partnerships and acknowledging our dedication to the safety and security of our programs, facilities, and the people and information we protect,” said Shea.
Executive Mosaic commends Peraton and Stu Shea for his 2020 Wash100 Award. Shea’s vision, leadership and drive to generate exponential growth and expand the company’s presence in the GovCon sector has cemented him as an executive who could be a significant influence in 2020.
