Lockheed Martin’s Maria Demaree Presented With 2024 Wash100 Award

Maria Demaree, vice president and general manager of national security space at Lockheed Martin’s space business, recently accepted her 2024 Wash100 Award during a meeting with Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the accolade.

Wash100 annually highlights executives in the government contracting industry who have consistently demonstrated remarkable leadership skills. To select its winners, Wash100 combs through the accomplishments of each nominee and weighs their impact on the field. The award also looks toward the future by considering the potential of its recipients to continue influencing the GovCon arena.

Demaree joined the ranks of Wash100 for the second time this year and was chosen for empowering space technology innovation and supporting national security missions. One way she did so was by spearheading the creation of a new technology testbed that uses artificial intelligence, cloud computing and automation to manage multiple satellite operations in space. She also led efforts to improve company culture.

“Appraising the value of Maria’s 33 years worth of commitment at Lockheed, one of the most technically advanced companies on earth, has no reliable yardstick. Maria and her team place the market value of Lockheed beyond the reach of any nonsovereign competitor in the private sector,” Garrettson said.

Executive Mosaic congratulates Demaree and Lockheed Martin Space on their entry into the 2024 Wash100 class.
