Today, Executive Mosaic praised the careers and contributions of two inductees to the Wash100 Class of 2023. Both John Sherman, chief information officer of the U.S. Department of Defense and Steve Escaravage, executive vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton, were singled out in ExecutiveGov sister publications GovCon Wire and ExecutiveBiz for the qualities that led them to be given the Wash100 Award.
The Wash100 has for over a decade earned a status as the preeminent marker of success and promise in the government contracting world. Its recipients — CEOs, technology leaders, distinguished military personnel and more — represent the most impactful figures working in GovCon and the federal sector. A discerning voting body sifts through hundreds of candidates to elevate those whose leadership, vision, innovation and reliability exceeds the rest.
Once the 100 awardees are announced, EM also holds a friendly (but intense!) popular vote contest every year from January through April to crown a fan favorite winner. Participate today at Wash100.com.
This year, Sherman secured his second consecutive Wash100 due to his stewardship regarding the Joint Warfighting Cloud Capability contract, a $9 billion initiative that expands and intensifies the DOD’s migration to the cloud with the help of major providers Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Oracle and Google. Sherman was additionally instrumental in helping to stand up and consolidate the Chief Data and Artificial Intelligence Office in early 2022 and disseminate the Pentagon’s zero trust implementation plan in the latter part of the year.

Over in the private sector, Escaravage is similarly receiving his second Wash100 Award for a second year in a row. The over two-decade BAH executive is making waves for his innovative artificial intelligence work, partnering with companies such as C3 AI to try to amplify the company’s autonomous tools’ reach and utility to the government customer. Escaravage is working tirelessly to meet and satisfy the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence’s mandate to muster military AI readiness by 2025.
