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:
A 30-year veteran of the IT industry, Dave Henderson was appointed President of CGI’s US Operations in May 2015. Succeeding George Schindler, who is now CGI’s Global Chief Operating Officer, Henderson and his family have moved to Northern Virginia from Texas for this role.
Reason to watch: Building on strong momentum, it will be interesting to see how Henderson propels CGI forward in 2016, combining organic growth and acquisitions, given CGI’s last large U.S. acquisition was Stanley in 2010.
