Dan Johnson, General Dynamics Info Systems-Tech Segment EVP, Chosen to 2017 Wash100 for Cyber & Intell Pursuit Leadership

Johnson_Dan_smallExecutive Mosaic is glad to recognize Dan Johnson, executive vice president of the information systems and technology segment at General Dynamics as an inductee into the 2017 edition of the Wash100 — Executive Mosaic’s annual selection of influential leaders in the government contracting arena.

This represents the third consecutive Wash100 selection for Johnson, who assumed the IS&T EVP role in January 2015 as an addition to his position as president of the General Dynamics Information Technology business unit.

IS&T revenue climbed 2.5 percent to $9.2 billion in 2016 and the company expects the segment to see higher 2017 sales, General Dynamics Chief Financial Officer Jason Aiken told investors in January.

In a June 2016 interview with Washington Technology, Johnson said he viewed cybersecurity and intelligence as potential growth areas for the Falls Church, Virginia-based defense and government services contractor.

Also last year, General Dynamics One Source — a joint venture between the company’s IT and mission systems businesses secured the $184 million Theater Mission Command Contract II contract for enterprise IT support services to U.S. Army Europe.

A General Dynamics-Raytheon JV also helps maintain the U.S. Air Force‘s space launch ranges in California and Florida under a $1.5 billion contract awarded in early 2015.

In addition, the Defense Security Service presented a James S. Cogswell Award to General Dynamics in recognition of security practices at four of its facilities.

Johnson served as chief operating officer of Anteon prior to its purchase by General Dynamics in 2006 and holds 28 years of experience from KPMG and BearingPoint.

Executive Mosaic congratulates Dan Johnson and the General Dynamics team for their selection to receive this award.
