Nominations are now open for WashingtonExec’s annual Pinnacle Awards, and we want to know which cybersecurity executives had the biggest impact supporting federal cybersecurity, including military, intelligence, law enforcement, health care and civilian agency customers.

The Pinnacle Awards embody the WashingtonExec spirit of highlighting successful executives and businesses saving money and fostering innovation for federal clients across the region. The awards will culminate in an Oct. 31 ceremony and luncheon at the Ritz Carlton Tysons Corner, where the chosen executives will be recognized.

For the Cybersecurity Executive of the Year Award, nominations may come from peers, employees, supervisors and fellow industry leaders. This category focuses on industry executives who work in protecting the nation’s cyber defenses in hardware, software and industrial control systems. Nominees range from long-term executives to recent and strategic hires. Executives gained after a successful transaction may also apply. Achievements between 2018 and 2019 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 Sept. 12.

Last year’s Cybersecurity Executive of the Year was Tim Patterson, senior vice president of CACI International. Patterson’s achievements for the accolade included his work with the Department of Homeland Security as well as his mentorship techniques for rising leaders.
