“Our plan is to continue to invest in growth, through both organic and inorganic means,” Carey Smith explained during a recent Executive Spotlight interview with ExecutiveBiz. “We will continue investing internally to ensure technology differentiation, and our research and development spend is 20 times what it was four years ago.”
She also specifically mentioned the critical areas of development and importance to the future capabilities of Parsons in data analytics, artificial intelligence, high-speed processing, data analytics and space, weapon system and infrastructure resiliency.
In addition, Carey Smith also discussed her transition into her first year as Parsons’ CEO following Chuck Harrington’s retirement, her growth strategy around major acquisitions and contracts as well as the changes and challenges brought on by the pandemic and more.
“We will stay on the path we’ve been on for the last four and a half years, as we’ve transformed the business in that time to a solutions integrator, Smith explained. “Today, we have a balanced Federal – Critical Infrastructure portfolio and are fortunate to be well-positioned in two high demand markets.
Further, our segments are complementary, and we are one of the only companies that can help solve the critical infrastructure resiliency problem as we have the cyber technology coupled with the infrastructure domain expertise.”
As a four-time winner of the most acclaimed and coveted award in GovCon, Carey Smith has demonstrated a best-in-class level of leadership and success as Parsons CEO and an irreplaceable presence in the GovCon community. Executive Mosaic is honored to recognize Carey Smith and Parsons as a 2022 Wash100 Award winner.
