Since last Friday, competition has intensified as new executives gain traction in the top 30 popular vote standings. The top four remains the same: Microsoft Federal’s Rick Wagner and Wes Anderson at numbers one and two, respectively, with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin at number three and first-time Wash100 winner Tameika Hollis, CEO of Illuminate Mission Solutions, at number four.

However, a competitor brand new to the vote standings thus far entered the top 30 and made it all the way to number five: Dave Wajsgras, CEO of Intelsat. Wajsgras rocketed to this high-ranking position in this year, which marked his seventh time receiving the Wash100. The exec is no stranger to this award body and could continue to be a fierce challenge in the popular vote in the coming weeks.

Also new to the top 30 this week is Northrop Grumman CEO Kathy Warden. This titan of industry enters the contest at a respectable number 27 and, given that she is the leader of one of the top firms in the nation, will likely be sticking around. It is Warden’s eighth time receiving the Wash100 honor.

Making strides from their position last week were Shawn Purvis, CEO of QinetiQ’s US business, who broke through to the top 10 at number nine. Capgemini Government Solutions CEO Doug Lane had the largest seven-day gain, soaring from number 29 last week to number 16 today. In addition, Northrop Grumman President of Defense Systems and Wash100 first-timer Roshan Roeder secured a place—for now—in the top 20, ascending five slots from number 22 to number 17 in a week’s time.

Congratulations to these executives on their progress and popularity! But there is still so much more time to go and so many votes left to be counted.
