What’s coming next? The key government contracting leaders aren’t just asking the question, they’re shaping the conversation. In WashingtonExec’s inaugural list of Top 30 Executives to Watch, we turn the spotlight on industry leaders who are positioning their companies for greater growth and relevance ahead. Selected by industry colleagues, these leaders hail from a diverse range of companies, where they’re fueling new ways of thinking and responding to the many challenges faced by their government customers. From cybersecurity to national defense, healthcare IT to big data, the needs will only grow as we settle into this Presidential election year and beyond. Throughout, we’re placing our bets that these industry leaders will continue to drive value and exceed expectations across all levels of government.
Top 30 Execs to Watch Spotlight:
Attain Chairman and CEO Greg Baroni celebrated another year of big wins with his team, including new work with EPA, Commerce, SEC and U.S. Army. Not only did the firm experience both significant financial and human capital growth — last year, Attain grew employee headcount by more than 30 percent — but it also grew its portfolio of strategic corporate alliances, adding Workday, ServiceNow and Salesforce, through which they are already heavily operational.
Reason to watch: Watch for Attain to continue their forward momentum in 2016, harnessing the significant gains of 2015 into continued growth in the new year. This year may be one where we see an acquisition or two.
