Joshua Marcuse, head of Strategy and Innovation for Google’s global public sector business, was presented his 2021 Wash100 Award, the most prestigious honor in all of government contracting (GovCon), on Tuesday during a visit from Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson.
The Wash100 Award is an annual honor given to the elite members of the GovCon community that are anticipated to make the most significant contributions in the year to come. This marks the second consecutive year that Marcuse has received a Wash100 Award, which demonstrates his level of commitment and success in our community and in the federal landscape as a whole.
For his latest Wash100 Award win, Marcuse received his trophy from Garrettson last week for his leadership and efforts to advance digital transformation, tech capabilities and drive industry partnerships.
Previously, Marcuse was recognized for his efforts to modernize software for the department and maintain the ethical guidelines to implement artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies.
At Google’s cloud segment, Marcuse is responsible for leading a digital transformation team that works to drive development in public-sector matters including cyber defense, smart cities and public health.
Marcuse has also helped lead Google Cloud’s partnerships with Microsoft, Apple and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) to create a notification tool to support contact tracing activities as part of a broader COVID-19 response effort.
Google also launched services to support collaborative team operations in line with remote work needs brought by the pandemic. These include the Workspace for Government tool and an artificial intelligence-based customer service platform called Contact Center AI.
Executive Mosaic congratulates Google Cloud and Joshua Marcuse on his 2021 Wash100 Award win. Even the most elite executives in our sector don’t receive the award more than once in a federal career. Executive Mosaic is proud to recognize Marcuse’s consistent level of excellence.
