BENS Chairman Mark Gerencser Receives Fourth Wash100 Award; Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson Quoted

Mark Gerencser, chairman of Business Executives for National Security (BENS), has received his fourth Wash100 Award as a recipient of the 2021 class for his stellar leadership as BENS’ chairman and other organizations as well as his drive and vision to establish a whole new national response and address our national security issues.

“Mark Gerencser continues to ascend in his critically important and supportive role for our national security,” said Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the Wash100 Award. “Recently accepting the board chairmanship with the Business Executives for National Security (BENS), Mark has celebrated a long career in National Security and Intelligence, 31 years at Booz Allen, his 12 years on the National Security Agency’s special advisory board and current board positions at both Alion Science and Technology as well as Guidehouse. It’s no wonder Mark has received the coveted Wash100 Award for the fourth time.”

In Jan. 2021, BENS appointed Gerencser as chairman of the board and executive committee. He succeeded Norman Chambers and will be responsible for guiding the nonprofit’s strategy to help government partners develop approaches for addressing national security challenges.

“Gerencser is a long-time BENS member and director who brings a wealth of experience in developing public-private partnerships which will serve our organization and the nation well,” said BENS President and CEO Gen. Joseph Votel.

Gerencser spoke with ExecutiveBiz in Feb. 2021 in a combined Executive Spotlight interview alongside Gen. Votel to discuss the release of BENS’ “Commission on the National Response Enterprise: A Call to Action” report that stresses the importance of improving national resilience in responding to sustained, nation-wide emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic.
