Byron Bright, president of the government solutions business at KBR, recently received his 2022 Wash100 Award, the highest honor in all of government contracting (GovCon), for his leadership in driving KBR’s military technology engineering, development, support and sustainment efforts in areas such as space, cyber and data analytics.
Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson officially presented Byron Bright with his third consecutive Wash100 win, the award that has recognized the most significant executives of consequence to the GovCon industry for the last nine years, during a recent visit to KBR’s office in Fairfax, VA.
The Wash100 Award has acted as the standard of recognition and success in the GovCon sector to acknowledge the accomplishments of the elite federal leaders in our industry and to recognize the executives who are expected to make the most significant contributions in the year to come.
“The fastest-growing areas of our business were our science and space unit, and our defense and intelligence unit,” said Bright. “Our focus on military space, cyber and data analytics, digital engineering and applying a lot of these tools, we see all of those things as remaining strong with our customers,” he added.

Byron Bright: “As the federal government thinks through the future of sustainability, what is that going to mean for the U.S. military and how they can support and make an impact in terms of how things operate at that level is top of mind? It’s one of the key things that is different about KBR. I think it gives us greater value to add back to our employees and customers.”
