John Reing, chief human resources officer at Peraton, has won WashingtonExec’s 2022 Pinnacle Award for HR Executive of the Year, Private Company.
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.
Reing noted in his finalist Q+A with WashingtonExec that he thrives on making an impact on the business, his clients, his company and especially his HR colleagues.
“Throughout my career, I have worked for two CEOs, twice, and in two different companies,” he said. “Another employer welcomed me back after a 15-year gap. Seven of my former HR team members have gone on to achieve their goal of being CHRO and I’ve had the privilege of working with the most talented HR team members a CHRO could want.”
