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:
Paul Leslie, CEO of Dovel Technologies, joined the company in 2011 after a number of years on Dovel’s Advisory Board. Under Leslie’s leadership, the company has achieved tremendous growth — Dovel was listed at No. 8 on Washington Business Journal‘s 50 Fastest Growing Companies list for 2015 with a three-year growth rate of 101.91 percent.
Leslie and his organization are also very involved in giving back to the community. Dovel is committed to supporting causes that are important to their employees, and earlier in 2015 Leslie was named Chairman of the Board of the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia, a grant-making and endowment-building organization with a focus on supporting the most pressing issues facing local neighbors in need.
