With this year’s honor, Krone has received his eighth consecutive Wash100 Award, the most in the award’s highly prestigious history. As the only GovCon executive to win a Wash100 Award eight times, Roger Krone continues to demonstrate the level of excellence and success that has transformed Leidos into the GovCon powerhouse that it is today.
The eighth consecutive award for Krone is made even more impressive by the fact that Executive Mosaic has a goal every year to remove at least half of the previous year’s Wash100 winners. The award also includes government, education, association and a keen focus on diversity and inclusion, which reduces the number of available award slots to be bestowed.
“Roger Krone has consistently demonstrated leadership by example and consistent performance,” said Garrettson. “Unlike many others CEOs in the government contracting world of organic plus M&A fast-paced growth, Roger has proven his ability to scale up not only the operation but has also helped build a culture of cohesive winning, superior management and an uncanny ability to manage the market, board expectations and the demands of being an almost $13 billion dollar public company.”
Executive Mosaic recognized Krone with this year’s Wash100 Award for his leadership and pursuit of major acquisitions and competitive contracts that have driven company growth for the first half of 2021 and will continue to be the driving force for Leidos for the rest of 2021 as well.
In fact, Leidos has reached a new level of success in securing contract awards and driving company growth over the month of June, in particular. With major contract award wins from Leidos and its many subsidiaries, the company accumulated more than five billion dollars in the last month across a variety of different sectors.
Most recently, the company secured a $2.5 billion follow-on contract to provide information technology and communications network services to all facilities and centers run by NASA, GovCon Wire reported on Monday.
The 10-year Advanced Enterprise Global Information Technology Solutions (AEGIS) contract will take effect on Sept. 1st with Leidos helping to manage and secure the agency’s wide and local-area networks, collaboration platforms, radios and other communications systems.
That contract award win came only a few days after Leidos was awarded a potential 13-year, $950 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) prime contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide solutions for a broad spectrum of aviation requirements.
Under this contract, the GovCon leading organization will also provide full aircraft as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) sensor integration, procurement of hardware and spares, sustainment support and inspections for airworthiness/configuration.
In addition, the company received a $471 million IDIQ prime contract from the Transportation Security Authority (TSA) on June 23rd to provide Transportation Screening Equipment (TSE) deployment services.
The work will cover installation, relocation and removal activities for airport scanners as well as provision of on-site coordination and design support. Leidos has over a decade of experience in supporting the agency’s TSE deployment effort.
The subsidiary will provide in-clinic and group event medical, information technology infrastructure, customer service, security and laboratory support services under the Reserve Health Readiness Program III contract.
Liz Porter, president of Leidos’ health group, said the contract builds on the company’s health delivery platforms and provides an opportunity to expand health care offerings for the country’s military reservists.
Leidos announced on June 16th that the company had secured a spot on an eight-year, $250 million contract with the U.S. Navy to to design, produce, install and test unmanned technology, its hardware and software platforms to provide the military branch a range of technical support services for unmanned waterborne and underwater mine countermeasures systems.
A couple of days earlier, the company reported another contract from the U.S. Navy, worth $62 million over two years, to help the service branch install and sustain an integrated undersea warfare system.
Another Leidos subsidiary Dynetics to build laser-based technology within the Orion spacecraft for NASA’s planned human missions to the moon. Dynetics will produce the Laser Air Monitoring System for crewed flights beginning with the Artemis III mission.
The annual Wash100 Award recognizes the elite leaders of the GovCon and federal sectors who are expected to bring the most success to their respective companies and the GovCon community as a whole in the year to come.
After securing more than five billion dollars in major contract award wins in June, Leidos has already set the standard for growth and success for the company in 2021 with only half the year in the books to date. This level of achievement in the GovCon sector is exactly what the Wash100 Award was created to recognize from the elite companies in our industry.
Executive Mosaic congratulates Roger Krone on becoming the greatest Wash100 Award winner in history and Leidos for making June 2021 one of the most profitable and successful months in the company’s history.
