Also showing huge progress was Northrop Grumman Corporate Vice President and Defense Systems sector President Mary Petryszyn, who rose from the number 10 slot to number six, almost breaking through to the top five.
U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Jen Easterly, celebrating her first ever Wash100 Award this year, made enormous strides in the ranking over the course of the week, climbing from her position at number 22 last week to number seven.
Additionally, Department of Defense Deputy Secretary Kathleen Hicks rose 10 spots, from number 23 to number 13 and General Dynamics Chairman and CEO Phebe Novakovic made commendable progress, moving from number 27 to number 25 in the span of a week.
