Executive Mosaic’s Top CTO Executives in Government Contracting Award

b-w-world-people

Many government contracting executives and federal agency leaders have publicly stated that rapid changes in technology are putting pressure on both the public and private sectors to keep pace with new tools as they enter market. Both contractors and agencies are also seeking to stay conscious of how innovative products might disrupt how they do business and wrestle with questions on ways to integrate new technologies into the workforce.

Chief technology officers in government and business are often the first C-level executives that see and respond to new innovations when they hit the market. CTO executives at contracting companies also work to ensure their company’s technical postures and policies remain up-to-date with the current technological environment.

ExecutiveBiz’s editorial leaders and staffers reached out to GovCon companies and federal agencies to identify who they view as the arena’s most prominent chief technology officers for this website’s first annual Top CTO Executives Award selection.

In that process, we asked awardees:  What technological advancement do you feel will most significantly impact your business in 2016?

ExecutiveBiz’s editorial team is pleased to present the Top CTO Executives of 2016!
