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 four 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.
The WashingtonExec Roll Call is a weekly feature within the WashingtonExec e-magazine that leverages our connections to catalog the area’s happenings.
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.
In this week’s WashExec RollCall, we saw 10 new hires/promotions and nine work anniversaries. Read on for insight about the topics that caught our eyes and ears this past week within our network’s virtual water cooler.
