Greg Baroni, the founder, chairman and CEO of Attain Partners, was presented with WashingtonExec’s Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Pinnacle Awards for his illustrious career and celebrated contributions to the community.
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, and Mac Curtis, chairman of the board for Veritas Capital-backed Cubic Corp., was the emcee.
Baroni has been on multiple WashingtonExec top lists throughout the years, but his accolades don’t stop there. He’s been honored with numerous industry leadership awards and recognitions, including the coveted Fed 100, Fast Company’s Fast 50, Consulting Magazine’s Top 25, the Greater Washington Government Contracting Awards’ Executive of the Year, just to mention a few.
Upon accepting his award at the Pinnacle Awards luncheon, Baroni addressed an audience of fellow GovCon leaders, friends and family in a heartfelt speech. He shared highlights and memorable moments of his career, spoke of his passion for the work he’s done and giving back, thanked mentors and those who believed in him along the way, and attributed much of his success to those around him ⏤ largely, his family and wife, Camille.
Baroni’s speech shared similar sentiments to that of an exclusive interview with WashingtonExec, where he described being on his “Grateful and Blessed” tour.
“It’s my Grateful and Blessed tour, because so many people contributed to where I am today, and this recognition provides a platform by which I can publicly acknowledge and thank some of the many people who have had such positive impacts on my journey to date,” Baroni said.
Prior to accepting his award, Baroni was introduced by fellow GovCon leader and friend Bruce Caswell, CEO of Maximus. Attain’s federal business was sold to Maximus in 2021 under Caswell’s leadership. Baroni said Attain was fortunate to have the business go to, “one of our region’s most inspirational leaders and who has significantly driven the growth of their business and is the first vice chair of NVTC (and my likely successor).”
