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 this alphabetized list, 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:
Marilyn Crouther, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) U.S. Public Sector, is a long-time veteran of the legacy company HP, having been with HP since 1989. Crouther’s leadership was vital in the successful transformation from HP to Hewlett Packard Enterprise when HP split into two companies, creating an entirely independent company HPE on Nov. 1, 2015.
In October, 2015, Crouther won the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC) Tech Awards, honoring groundbreaking companies/firms, leaders and innovations in the Greater Washington, D.C. region.
Reason to watch: It will be interesting to see if HPE embarks on an acquisition strategy for the company’s U.S. Public Sector in 2016 and beyond.
