Mike King, chief growth officer at Peraton, has won WashingtonExec’s 2020 Chief Officer Award for Private Company CGO.
In its inaugural year, the Chief Officer Awards luncheon was held June 17 as a virtual live-streamed program to accommodate the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations about in-person events. Over 500 people watched as C-suite executives in both industry and government were recognized for their innovation, expertise, impact and thought leadership.
In his current role, King is responsible for developing and executing all aspects of the company’s growth strategy, including business development, capture, proposal operations, strategic pricing, customer engagement and mergers and acquisitions.
King helped build Peraton when the company formed in 2017. Under his leadership, the organization transformed from a set of individual programs to a large-scale national security business capable of engaging in all warfare domains.
Previously, King worked at Northrup Grumman for 16 years. There, he held leadership positions including various vice president and director roles. During his time there, he led the company’s business development, capture, proposal and customer engagement efforts.
King’s proudest accomplishment is the relationships he has built over the course of his career.
“I am lucky to have only worked for four companies in my professional life,” he previously told WashingtonExec. “That time on station has allowed me to build some significant professional and personal relationships.”
