The deadline is quickly approaching to submit nominations for the Pinnacle Awards, and we want your help to find big data and artificial intelligence executives whose contributions drove positive change in the federal government.

The inaugural Pinnacle Awards will highlight successful executives and businesses saving money and spurring 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 Big Data/AI Executive of the Year Award, nominations may come from peers, employees, supervisors and fellow industry leaders. This category focuses on industry executives tasked with data/AI responsibilities to support federal government missions.

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.
