WashExec Executive RollCall:
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, I’ve decided to expand our networking offering with some supplementary content.

Let me 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.

For the past two months we have tapped into our thousands of LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and in-person 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.

RollCall Column supported exclusively by leading search consultancy:

Read on for insight about the topics that caught our eyes and ears this past week within our network’s virtual water cooler.
