McLean, VA (PRWEB) November 19, 2014 -- Mehul Sanghani, President and CEO of Octo Consulting Group, was named Executive of the Year at the 12th Annual Greater Washington Government Contractor (GovCon) Awards gala, widely regarded as the premier awards event and the “Academy Awards” for the Washington area government contracting community. This award is presented to a Greater Washington-area government contracting executive who is recognized for making outstanding contributions to his/her company, the community, and the government contracting industry during the past year.
A leading provider of agile software development, user experience, data visualization, and IT strategy services for the Federal market, Octo was nominated this year as a finalist for both the Contractor of the Year and Executive of the Year awards, representing its 3rd consecutive year as a nominee at the awards gala. In 2013, Octo was a finalist in both the Contractor of the Year and Executive of the Year categories, and in 2012, Octo won the GovCon Contractor of the Year award. The GovCon Awards honor regional companies demonstrating outstanding leadership and transformative innovation. Award criteria include notable financial and operational accomplishments as well as exceptional employee contributions to the federal contracting industry.
Recognized by the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and the Professional Services Council, Sanghani largely credited his achievements to his employees and mentors: “Everyone was incredibly worthy of the honor, and I’m honored to accept this on behalf of all the other finalists. What I feel makes our firm different is that Octo folks come to work every day with grit and a will to succeed that really sets them apart. I would like to thank the leaders who have inspired me; ever since I have been in this industry, the people I have followed represent the Mount Rushmore of government contracting. I’m privileged to look to those folks as examples. To be a nominee is an incredible honor, but to have the good fortune to have won a prestigious GovCon award now 2 out of the last 3 years, is a testament to our employees and their determination. Very grateful for that and we are humbled by the recognition.”
