Jennifer Felix, formerly chief financial officer at Vencore, has won the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s Private Company CFO of the Year award in recognition of her contributions to the Greater Washington region’s technology sector.

Felix was recognized in one of the four categories for NVTC’s 22nd Annual Greater Washington Technology CFO Awards held Monday at The Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, Va., Perspecta said Thursday.

Perspecta started trading on the New York Stock Exchange on June 1 following its separation from DXC Technology and merger with KeyPoint Government Solutions and Vencore, which now runs as a wholly owned subsidiary of Perspecta.
