Aaron Weis, chief information officer with the Department of the Navy, was presented his second consecutive Wash100 Award, the most prestigious honor in all of government contracting (GovCon) during a recent visit by Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic.
“Best known for his skills of strategy and cross-functional team leadership, Navy CIO Aaron Weiss has distinguished himself for his ability to lead both technology and cybersecurity capabilities across both the Navy and Marine Corp., said Garrettson.
As a 2021 Wash100 Award recipient, Weis received the award for the second time for his efforts to implement initiatives to update information technology processes and security practices for the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps.
Weis has managed IT budget, national security system investments and cybersecurity for the two service branches since his appointment to the DON CIO post in Sept. 2019. He received his 2020 Wash100 Award for his guiding principles to drive DON’s information technology and cyber readiness goals.
Executive Mosaic congratulates Aaron Weis and the Department of the Navy team for their selection to receive the 2021 Wash100 Award. Weis’ strong leadership and innovative solutions have cemented his footprint in the government contracting (GovCon) sector and driven modernization across the federal government.
Executive Mosaic recently announced that Dr. Stacey Dixon, deputy director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), had received the most votes from the GovCon community in the eight-year history of the Wash100 Award. Here are the final results of the 2021 Wash100 Vote Standings:
“The award aims to recognize already accomplished executives on what we feel they WILL do in the year to come. This represents a vote of confidence and maybe even a little extra pressure on the heels of a pandemic that is a tall order of heightened expectation,” said Garrettson.
