SECAF Names 13th Annual Government Contractor Award Winners
GovCon Community Celebrates Excellence Through Resilience
 
May 7, 2021, McLean, VA – The Small and Emerging Contractors Advisory Forum (SECAF) is pleased to announce the winners of the 13th Annual Government Contractor Awards. Last night hundreds of people throughout the GovCon ecosystem gathered virtually to celebrate this year’s theme “Excellence Through Resilience” as the 2021 winners were named. More than 20 regional business leaders chose this year’s finalists from an extraordinary group of applicants. Award winners were then selected by a distinguished group of judges, including Cynthia Barreda (COO of Solerity), Shiv Krishnan (CEO, KOOLROX and Founder of INDUS Corp), Kevin Robbins (Co-Founder of Blue Delta Capital Partners and Co-Founder of Wolf Den Associates), and Peter Schulte (Principal, CM Equity). The Event Chairs were Scott Brezler (Managing Partner, Government Contracting Industry Group, DHG), Cameron Hamilton (Managing Director, FON Advisors), and James Sams (Vice President, Commercial Relationship Manager, Atlantic Union Bank).
 
The Government Contractor of the Year awards recognize companies in four revenue categories (Under $7.5M, $7.5-15M, $15-27.5M, and $27.5-50M) that have shown a compelling and profound commitment to excellence in growth and financial performance. The Award of Excellence highlights an organization that represents excellence within their community, the government contracting industry, and towards employees. The Government Project of the Year is given to a company that has delivered a stellar program with significant value to the federal government. The Mentor-Protégé Program of the Year honors companies that have shown a compelling and profound commitment to excellence through its efforts as a prime contractor.
 
The Special Recognition Award is presented to a small business that – in the judges' view – exemplifies many of the core qualities of the other SECAF awards and has a strong focus on providing class-leading services and solutions. The Government Advocate of the Year commends an organization or a person within the federal government who has provided leadership, commitment, and direction and had a profound and positive impact on the small and emerging contracting community. The Executive of the Year represents a regionally-based  individual that has shown a compelling and profound commitment to excellence to their company, within the community, the government contracting industry, and towards their employees. Finally, the SECAF Advocate of the Year is bestowed upon a member who tirelessly championed the organization’s mission.
