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:
It was a big year for Jerry Hogge, Senior Vice President and Deputy Group President for Leidos Federal Health. Hogge was the lead executive for the Leidos-led team that won the massive, $4.3 billion Defense Healthcare Management Systems Modernization (DHMSM) contract in July 2015. Hogge and team won the 22 month-long fierce competition and brought a renewed excitement to Leidos Federal Health and the consortium of companies who comprise the winning team.
Leidos Federal Health had a fantastic year in 2015, a year where incredible teamwork brought growth and success across the business. The Leidos Federal team re-won its cornerstone Military Health program, AHLTA/CHCS sustainment, as well as many other strategically important programs across the business.
Reason to watch: As one local executive leader says, “Jerry and his team set the pace in Federal Health Information Technology success in 2015.”
