Richard Crowe, Booz Allen’s chief growth officer, has won WashingtonExec’s 2021 Pinnacle Award for Business Development Executive of the Year (Public Company).
WashingtonExec on Dec. 8 virtually unveiled the winners of the Pinnacle Awards, an annual program that embodies the WashingtonExec spirit of highlighting successful executives and businesses saving money and fostering innovation for federal clients across the region.
Crowe noted recent key achievements were becoming Booz Allen’s first-ever chief growth officer; expanding the health business during his tenure (which was on track to exceed $1.5 billion in revenue in 2021); and the company’s award of the Department of Veterans Affairs Benefits Integrated Delivery program for nearly $1.1 billion.
With a “pay it forward” philosophy of executive leadership, Crowe advises those who want to follow in his footsteps to put people first. “True innovation starts with your staff,” he said. “If you forget that, you’ve lost something.”
