Industry Roars Back in Wash100 Popular Vote Rankings & 3 New Faces Enter Race

We’re now over a month into the popular vote contest for the 2024 Wash100 Award and we’ve arrived at the most exciting week yet for new developments. After weeks of domination by public sector officials, the government has receded into the background as private industry is surging ahead. Three new names also catapulted into the top 30, all three from the contractor side of the GovCon equation.

Every year, in January, Executive Mosaic commends the industry-shaping work of 100 leaders in the GovCon industry and federal sector.

The four biggest jumps of the week were Oracle’s Kim Lynch, who ascended three spots from number nine last week to a top five-threatening number six placement; Google Public Sector’s Karen Dahut, hopping from 12 into the top 10 to number nine; Peraton’s Stu Shea, who similarly snuck his way into the top 20 to number 19 from number 23; and AT&T’s Jill Singer, up three spots to number 11. Note that these are all private sector winners! Industry responded to last week’s call for help in spades.

Continuing the industry push was Booz Allen Hamilton’s Judi Dotson, a high-ranking contender for first place last year who bumped up a slot to number seven.

Additionally, the three new entrants were: SAP NS2’s Harish Luthra, perennial favorite Craid Abod of Carahsoft and NVIDIA’s Anthony Robbins. Luthra and Abod remarkably debuted in the top 20, at numbers 16 and 17, respectively, and Robbins made nice progress too, coming in at number 28.

But despite all of these shifts, the top five held strong this week: IBM’s Susan Wedge at number one, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Charles Brown Jr. at number two, Deputy Secretary of Defense Dr. Kathleen Hicks at number three, the Defense Health Agency’s Lt. Gen. Telita Crosland at four and the Department of the Air Force’s Venice Goodwine at five.
