In a year of transformational change, government contractors are facing that question like never before. A few select leaders are even shaping the conversation.
For the second year in a row, WashingtonExec has assembled its list of executives who are blazing a path in uncertain times. Who are the trendsetters finding opportunities and maintaining their relevance in a crowded marketplace?
Bill Weber joined KeyW in October 2015, following the passing of company founder Len Moodispaw. Since then Weber has grown the company while preserving its “entrepreneurial, fun and familial culture,” as he puts it. Weber has since divested non-mission focused assets, invested in a growth engine, given back to the IT community through open source development, and unified the narrative and refreshed the company’s brand.
Why watch: Weber has established a track record of making – and keeping – promises to shareholders regarding financial performance. Weber’s taking decisive, calculated steps to further KeyW’s growth, and set a goal for KeyW to become a $500 million provider of the most advanced engineering and technology solutions for the intelligence, cyber and counterterrorism communities by 2020. Plus, the company announced a public offering of common stock in late January – a signal of greater potential ahead.
