The coveted Wash100 Award recognizes the top 100 most influential and impactful executives working in the government contracting industry and the U.S. federal government. These leaders are the ones to watch in 2024 and beyond, as they’re uniquely positioned to meaningfully advance government missions and positively contribute to their organizations.

“Under Doug’s leadership, LMI has undergone a significant transformation, solidifying its position as a key player across its core markets of defense, space, health and civilian, homeland security and intelligence,” said Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the Wash100 Award.

“Doug is a serially successful senior executive whose ‘can do’ attitude gets proven results, and LMI benefits from his impressive tapestry of relationships and integrations across the GovCon industry. He has built up a strong leadership team, and he’s confidently shepherding LMI into a new era of growth and innovation. With Doug‘s recent realignment of LMI’s strategy and market pursuits, he has a Gretsky-like ability to skate to where the market is going,” Garrettson added.

With Wagoner’s strategic guidance, LMI has won several key contracts over the last year in their core market areas. In October 2023, LMI announced it booked a potential $604 million contract to modernize the U.S. Border Patrol Program Management Office Directorate’s technological capabilities.

“This pivotal milestone in LMI history is a testament to the exceptional service we provide for our customers. We remain committed to continuously exceeding expectations in support of PMOD’s crucial mission and delivering innovative solutions at the pace of need,” Wagoner said of the award.

LMI also won a number of contracts through its health and civilian business. In November 2023, the company announced it won a potential eight-year, $670 million contract to help the U.S. Postal Service manage enterprise-wide programs and projects. And in the spring, LMI secured a position on a $149 million blanket purchase agreement to help the Food and Drug Administration update its business operations and processes.

Through its defense business, LMI landed a potential five-year, $33.9 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide data and analysis services in support of the service’s Readiness-Based Sparing and Readiness-Spares Packages. The company also extended its support to the Strategy, Strategic Engagement, Concepts and Wargames program of the U.S. Transportation Command under an approximately $15 million contract.

In addition to his knack for securing contracts, Wagoner was also named to the 2024 Wash100 list for building up a strong senior executive leadership team to head LMI’s core market operations. In March 2023, Wagoner brought Jon Baba onto the team to lead LMI’s defense market.

In the summer of 2023, Wagoner tapped Mark Eddings to lead LMI’s space market and appointed Christen Smith as president of the company’s service lines and solutions business. Most recently Wagoner brought on Gary Barber to serve as vice president and chief technology officer for the LMI’s Department of Homeland Security portfolio.

Wagoner’s commitment to leadership excellence is also evident in his decision to stand up an advisory council of current and former military and intelligence officers aimed at informing and guiding LMI’s technology development and expansion efforts in the public sector.

The advisory council consists of Mark Esper, former secretary of the Department of Defense; Mike Hayes, chief operating officer of VMware and former director of defense policy and strategy; Michael Morell, former deputy director of the CIA; Jay Raymond, former chief of space operations of the U.S. Space Force; and Jennifer Snow, venture partner at Allied Ventures and former chief technology officer for AFWERX.

“The insight and guidance from this group of individuals will help LMI better anticipate our customers’ future needs and goals while continuing to deliver Innovation at the Pace of Need,” Wagoner said of the council.

Executive Mosaic congratulates Doug Wagoner and LMI on their inclusion in the 2024 Wash100 list.
