Raj Iyer, the Army’s chief information officer, has won WashingtonExec’s 2022 Pinnacle Award for Cloud Government Executive of the Year. Shortly after, in a Jan. 4 LinkedIn post, Iyer announced he’d be stepping down from the position, noting, “my job as the Army’s first CIO is complete.”
“With the completion of my contract with the Army, it is now time for me to return to industry where I can take on the next big challenge,” Iyer said in his post.
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.
