JD Kathuria pulls from the broader WashingtonExec network to dish out the area’s who’s who and what’s what
When it comes to striking deals, who you know trumps what you know in the government contracting community. And with three years of WashingtonExec’s outcome and result-oriented networking programs and events behind us, we’ve decided to expand our networking offering with some supplementary content.
Let us introduce you to the WashingtonExec Roll Call — a weekly feature within the WashingtonExec e-magazine that leverages our connections to catalog the area’s happenings.
This marks the second week we tapped into our thousands of LinkedIn connections to compile and share with you information about the promotions, company switches, job openings and work anniversaries that transpire within the broader WashingtonExec network.
The end result? A running map of who’s where — professionally — in the Greater Washington area.
Business boomed this week in the WashingtonExec network. Three executives touted promotions, eight in our network moved companies and 11 celebrated work anniversaries. We also experimented in this week‘s e-magazine to share with you information about three job opportunities.
