Amentum CEO John Vollmer Receives Sixth Wash100 Award; Executive Mosaic CEO Jim Garrettson Quoted

This year, Amentum CEO John Vollmer has received his sixth Wash100 Award win, as a recipient of the 2021 Wash100 Award, for his leadership in establishing “˜Amentum' in the federal market and driving its significant growth through major contract awards and key acquisitions.

“Since emerging as a driving force following AECOM's acquisition of URS and installing John Vollmer and the current senior team, the company has enhanced its offerings and brought its business to the next level,“ said Jim Garrettson, CEO of Executive Mosaic and founder of the Wash100 Award.

John Vollmer, a six-time winner of the coveted Wash100 Award has continued the impressive rollup of Dyncorp, the rebranding and name change to Amentum as well as his impressive performance for their owner Lindsay Goldberg. We expect John to continue driving the accelerating footprint of Amentum's growing dominance within the government services sector.“

Throughout 2020, Vollmer's leadership showcased the level of excellence that the Wash100 Award, the most prestigious award in all of government contracting (GovCon) looks to recognize every year. 

After Amentum was established in early 2020, following Lindsay Goldberg and American Securities' acquisition of AECOM's management services group, the company drove its own success to significantly grow its business financially through major acquisitions such as its purchase of Dyncorp in Nov. 2020 and various contract award wins to establish its new name in the federal marketplace as a major player. 

“Amentum builds upon a 116-year heritage of safety, operational excellence and delivering on our promises and honoring our commitments,“ said Vollmer. “We have to differentiate ourselves with better solutions, better processes, better technology,“ he noted. “If we leverage that into our domain knowledge, that will be a game-changer.“

Executive Mosaic congratulates Amentum and John Vollmer on his 2021 Wash100 Award. John possesses leadership and vision that has established Amentum as a major player in the federal and GovCon space very quickly and his drive for the company is to continue that momentum for the rest of 2021 and beyond.
