2024 Wash100 Vote Now!

Each year, Executive Mosaic’s coveted Wash100 Award recognizes the most promising and outstanding executives to watch in the coming year. As a forward-looking accolade, the Wash100 is bestowed upon individuals who have not only demonstrated excellence throughout their careers in the government and government contracting landscape, but who are also positioned to deliver unparalleled impact and innovation to federal missions into the future.

“After a rigorous selection process — and building on more than a decade of excellence — the 2024 Wash100 honors the GovCon industry’s true elite. These 100 exceptional leaders exemplify groundbreaking vision, unwavering innovation and the resolute dedication to excellence that shapes the government and GovCon landscapes and propels our nation to new heights. We celebrate their triumphs, not just as the proven leaders of today, but as architects of a brighter future for government contracting,” said Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the iconic Wash100 Award.


Executive Mosaic received an overwhelming, record-breaking response to our call for nominations this year with submissions almost doubling our total from last year. With each iteration of the esteemed Wash100 Award, we take care to refresh the list of names so that it’s truly reflective of only the most talented leaders making waves in the government and GovCon ecosystem. This year, nearly 50 percent of our winners are new to the Wash100 list.

The Wash100 Award proudly represents every facet of the federal landscape — of our 100 winners, more than one-third are government officials, and nearly two-thirds are industry executives. Additionally, 56 companies and 20 federal agencies are represented in the 2024 Wash100 selection. We’re also proud to announce that more than one-third of our winners this year are women.
