Pinnacle Awards: Nominate Now for General Manager of the Year


Nominations are now open for WashingtonExec’s inaugural Pinnacle Awards, and we want to know which general managers and chief operations officers were most successful in running and growing their business units.

The Pinnacle Awards embody the WashingtonExec spirit of highlighting leading executives and businesses saving money and fostering innovation for federal clients across the region. The awards will culminate in a Nov. 1 ceremony and luncheon at the Ritz Carlton Tysons Corner, where the chosen executives will be recognized.

For the General Manager and Federal Practice Leader of the Year Award, nominations may come from peers, employees, supervisors and fellow industry leaders. This category focuses on COOs, general managers and federal practice leaders with P&L responsibilities of at least $100 million in federal revenue from 2017-2018.

Nominees range from long-term executives to recent and strategic hires. Executives gained after a successful transaction may also apply. Achievements between 2017 and 2018 will be considered.

The awards ceremony is for companies located in Washington, D.C., Virginia or Maryland. An executive and/or company can submit nominations for more than one category, and self-nominations are accepted. Nominations should be no more than 500 words and include how the executive solved a challenge(s) for the end customer. The submission deadline is Oct. 12.

The Judges Committee includes Anne Altman, chairman of the board, Siemens Government Technologies; Tim Keenan, founder, Keenan & Associates; and Doug Wagoner, board member, Thomson Reuters. Dr. John Hillen, professor of practice and executive in residence at George Mason University and author of “What Happens Now,” will serve as the program’s emcee. Donna Morea, former president of CGI in U.S., Europe and Asia, was recently named the 2018 Pinnacle Awards Hall of Fame awardee.
