Shawn Purvis, president and CEO of QinetiQ Group’s U.S. subsidiary, accepted her 2022 Wash100 Award, the most significant award of consequence to the government contracting community, during a recent visit by Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson to the company’s office in Lorton, VA.
“Shawn Purvis has distinguished herself through a leadership approach based on teamwork, which is fitting since she ensures that her team of more than 90,000 employees, across all 50 states in 25 countries, have the latest IT tools and technologies to not only provide world-class products and services but keep the enterprise secure in cyberspace,” Garrettson said.
Executive Mosaic is honored to recognize Shawn Purvis as a two consecutive-time Wash100 winner for her leadership to expand the QinetiQ U.S. footprint and drive enterprise growth and services as well as her vision for business technology transformation to support our sector in the future.
Shawn Purvis was recently appointed as QinetiQ US’ president and CEO back in Jan. 2022. In her role, she oversees the operations of the company as it offers critical capabilities in support of critical assets as well as defense and security forces in the country.
Purvis brings more than 25 years of executive experience leading billion-dollar organizations in the areas of defense, intelligence and cybersecurity with Northrop Grumman, SAIC and Lockheed Martin over the course of her career to help their customers address next generation of threats, strengthen force protection and lessen cognitive burden through autonomy.
“With an ambition to build a disruptive mid-tier company in the US through both organic growth and strategy-led acquisitions, I am focused on driving both strong operational performance and executing on our growth strategy for the medium and long-term,” Purvis said.
Most recently, Shawn Purvis took part in a recent video interview with Executive Mosaic to discuss her transition into the company over the course of 2022 as well as QinetiQ’s core offerings, new opportunities for expansion and her vision for the future of QinetiQ U.S.
During the conversation with Executive Mosaic’s Summer Myatt, the two-time Wash100 recipient discussed the resilience and the ingenuity of QinetiQ and its employees, including its focus on delivering on core capabilities like C5ISR, robotics and autonomous solutions.
Purvis also mentioned news opportunities emerging as the Department of Defense rolls out its Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) initiative.
Executive Mosaic is thrilled to recognize QinetiQ and Shawn Purvis as a 2022 Wash100 Award winner. As a two-time winner of the highest honor in GovCon, Purvis has been recognized for her grand contributions to the GovCon community that expects to continue into the coming year.
