2024 Wash100 Week 11 top 10

Record Vote Totals Continue & Booz Allen Resumes Dominance in Wash100 Popular Vote

The story of the Wash100 Award popular vote contest this week remains the staggering vote count. In the last month, we have seen our first-ever contestant cross the threshold of 1,000 votes—Booz Allen Hamilton’s Judi Dotson. Shortly thereafter, another competitor, IBM’s Susan Wedge, an early favorite this year and currently the number three standing as of this writing, achieved the same feat.

Now, two more Wash100 winners have netted over 1,000 displays of confidence in their leadership skills: Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Charles Brown Jr., who seized the number two spot from Wedge, and Karen Dahut of Google Public Sector. Congratulations to these individuals on this remarkable milestone, a clear indicator of the general public’s immense appreciation of their talent.

Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 Award is a yearly celebration of the 100 foremost beacons of leadership, vision, innovation and reliability in the government contracting sector. Whether hailing from the government, military or industry, these high-achievers are deciding the future direction of GovCon. Once the winners are announced in January, a popular vote contest is unleashed, where the public has until April 30 to support their favorite recipients.

If you haven’t yet voted this year, hurry to Wash100.com now! There’s only a little less than three weeks to go.

After a couple of weeks where he was displaced to just outside the top five of the ranking, Booz Allen’s Steve Escaravage returned to number five over the last week, reestablishing a stronghold for the company, as his colleague Dotson is reigning supreme at number one.

Microsoft Federal President Candice Ling, a first-time Wash100 winner, reached her highest placement yet this week, moving upward from number 14 to number 13. She has fought her way upward all the way from number 28 in the first week of the contest; keep an eye on her.

In an overall strong showing for industry this week, CACI International’s DeEtte Gray made a large leap from number 30 to number 24 in only seven days. Akima CEO Bill Monet also made gains a little lower down, rising a spot to number 28.

Government officials still made a bit of a mark, with Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering Heidi Shyu climbing a spot to number 19 and Deputy Director of National Intelligence Dr. Stacey Dixon — the competition’s winner a couple of years back — ascending from number 27 to number 26.

Unsatisfied with how the rankings are shaking out? Or, alternatively, interested in keeping them how they stand? Either way, you need to vote! Participate now (hint: we won’t look the other way if you use multiple email addresses). Have fun and thanks for your involvement!
