Executive Mosaic is honored to introduce Dave Buss, president of Cubic Corp.‘s global defense business, as an inductee into the 2017 edition of the Wash100 — Executive Mosaic’s annual selection of influential leaders in the government contracting arena.
Buss was promoted to his current role for the $875 million segment in May 2016 and subsequently also took a senior vice president title.
He joined Cubic in June 2015 as vice president and deputy to the president of the global defense segment after more than 36 years in the U.S. Navy, where he served as commander of the Naval Air Forces.
The retired vice admiral also served as deputy commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command and commander of Carrier Strike Group 12.
Buss told Inside Defense in October 2016 Cubic is focused on performance-based training products and the company works with military customers to define readiness standards.
“If we can provide more readiness output for the same or [fewer] dollars invested… then the value increases,” he said at the time.
Cubic received a five-year, $20 million task order from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific in October 2016 to provide operational support for the U.S. Pacific Command‘s Center for Excellence in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance.
Buss said Cubic will work to help Pacific Command and its Asia-Pacific allies meet real-time operational objectives through CFE-DM.
Executive Mosaic congratulates Dave Buss and the Cubic team for their selection to receive this award.
This year represents our fifth annual Wash100 award selection. The Wash100 is the premier group of private and public sector leaders selected by Executive Mosaic's organizational and editorial leadership as the most influential leaders in the GovCon sector. These leaders demonstrate skills in leadership, innovation, achievement, and vision.
