Jerry McGinn, executive director of the Center for Government Contracting for George Mason University’s (GMU) School of Business and GovCon Expert for Executive Mosaic, was presented with his first Wash100 Award during a recent visit to GMU by Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the Wash100 Award.
Executive Mosaic, the leading provider in connecting, promoting and branding government and government contracting (GovCon) executives of consequence, has recognized GovCon Expert Jerry McGinn with the most coveted and respected award in the sector for his leadership and insight into the critical issues impacting the GovCon industry and the defense-industrial base (DIB) that relates to the reshoring process, domestic production and our nation’s M&A activities in important markets.
Most recently, GovCon Expert Jerry McGinn wrote a commentary piece detailing that the current administration should move forward with a “steady as she goes” approach towards mergers and acquisitions in the aerospace and defense markets.
“Overall, these cases demonstrate the strength of the HSR regime at maintaining competition in the defense-industrial base. Rather than introducing uncertainty and risk, the administration is better served by keeping M&A policy ‘steady as she goes,’” McGinn added.
McGinn also recommended during an interview in Jan. 2021 that the current administration should also work to identify requirements for driving domestic production due to differing views on what the reshoring process entails, including the need to refine manufacturing skills and mitigate reliance on China on materials such as rare earths and microelectronics.
