GovCon Awards Names Jason Providakes CEO of the Year

GovCon Awards 20th Anniversary

MITRE President and CEO Jason Providakes was named a CEO of the Year in the Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards (GovCon)

When Providakes became CEO in 2017, he focused on business transformation and strengthening our foundation to deliver impact far into the future–working in partnership with government, industry, and academia to solve problems for a safer world. 

MITRE has locations in more than 60 communities around the world, employing more than 10,000 scientists, engineers, programmers, and technologists who work in the public interest. Being a good neighbor is an important part of MITRE’s corporate culture. 

Since MITRE opened its second headquarters in McLean, Virginia, it has been a major local employer with more than 3,000 employees in Northern Virginia. They contribute to the region both through their work and their community service. Many employees are active volunteers on educational, economic, and social issues. 

In its work, MITRE contributes to the growth of the region through partnerships that advance STEM education. MITRE is also a connector–bridging government, the private sector, and academia to develop local talent and drive innovation.

MITRE is fully committed to being an excellent partner and an enabler for growth across the Northern Virginia region. 

The GovCon CEO of the Year awards are presented in three annual company revenue categories with Providakes winning the “more than $300 million” category. The GovCon Awards, founded by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce in 2002 following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, honor the exceptional work of the leaders and businesses in the region’s government contracting sector.
