Chris Hetman, vice president of consulting services at CGI Federal, has won WashingtonExec’s 2022 Pinnacle Award for Supply Chain Executive of the Year.
WashingtonExec on Nov. 30 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.
Nearly 525 attendees gathered for the in-person luncheon held at the Ritz Carlton in McLean, Virginia.
Along with the government and industry winners, Attain Partners Founder, Chairman and CEO Greg Baroni was honored with the 2022 Pinnacle Awards Lifetime Achievement Award for his illustrious career and celebrated contributions to the community. Mac Curtis, chairman of the board for Veritas Capital-backed Cubic Corp., was the emcee.
Hetman noted in his finalist Q+A with WashingtonExec that as a trusted adviser to Defense Department clients, he attributes part of his success to his own military experience. He served as a Marine information technologist when Marines were programmers, DBAs and network engineers during his time in service.
“Through this experience, I came to understand how important this mission is to our nation’s security, and the welfare of our men and women in uniform,” Hetman said. “As a military technologist then, and as senior executive leading a team of business and IT experts today, the continuity of knowing and supporting our military’s supply chain and logistics missions over the years gives me the perspective and the experience on asset and inventory visibility, accuracy, tracking and delivery.”
