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?
In December, Kelly was tapped as the new president and CEO of Buchanan & Edwards, a fast-growing technology leader creating transformative solutions for government customers. Kelly had previously been responsible for growing some of the industry’s most successful companies, including Anteon (now General Dynamics IT) and A-T Solutions, which was acquired by PAE in 2015. That track record has solidified Kelly’s recognition as one of the most-admired CEOs in the government contracting market.
Why watch: Within the first 60 days, Kelly has already helped set a new course for Buchanan & Edwards to create rapid growth, enhance its services to current customers, expand its customer base in national security, and provide employees additional benefits – and increased opportunities – for professional growth. Kelly is also quickly moving to support an active acquisitive strategy to augment the company’s organic growth and further enhance its capabilities and offerings.
