Mark Gerencser, ExecutiveMosaicExecutive Mosaic is honored to announce Mark Gerencser, CyberSpa chairman, as the newest inductee into the Wash 100, the premier group of leaders who create value for the American public and execute strategic vision at the intersection of the public and private sectors.

Gerencser spent 31 years with Booz Allen Hamilton through his retirement from the firm in July 2013, during which time he served six terms on the firm’s board of directors and helped lead the firm’s efforts to solve complex energy, environment, transportation and infrastructure problems.

CyberSpa logo“Firms with diverse market presence and the right capabilities are better positioned for future success in the changing and turbulent world that we all face,” Gerencser said when he elevated to managing partner of Booz Allen’s global commercial business in 2012.

In his best-selling book “Megacommunities“, Gerencser advocates that public, private and civil sector leaders must unite to solve the world’s most pressing problems, a goal he worked towards when he created Booz Allen’s infrastructure center of excellence.

“We must articulate a national vision for America’s infrastructure that defines the function and performance of the whole system over its entire lifecycle,” Gerencser told GovCon Exec. “Only with such a vision can we devise an integrated policy that spans government bureaucracy silos and enables key stakeholders (business, government, civil society) to operate in alignment.”

infraIn 2010, Gerencser helped found CyberSpa, whose PC services system fully automates delivery of data transfer, virus removal and other performance and security services, and is designed to adapt future software and services to its core platform.

He now serves as chairman of CyberSpa, recently joined the board of directors at Sotera Defense Solutions, and serves as chairman of the board of visitors at Univeristy of Maryland, University College, where he earned a graduate degree in technology management.

“The key question… goes well beyond how smart you might be or how many degrees and titles you have after your name,” Gerencser told the graduating class at UMUC’s 2013 commencement.cyber-security-image

“The question is this: do you have that special fire within you? In other words, will you allow your heart to play a significant role in your future and the impact that you could have on the world?”

“If you can do that, with your education, your life experiences, and now by understanding and mastering that magical ingredient, your fire within, you are able to accomplish great things of monumental impact.”
