Peraton named America’s Best Managed Company 2022 for excellence in strategy and corporate culture; CEO Stu Shea quoted
Peraton was recognized among a group of esteemed companies as America’s Best Managed Company in 2022 by Deloitte Private and the Wall Street Journal.
A celebration of companies that are doing very well in strategy and execution and evidence of a strong company culture and governance/financial performance, Peraton was one of 51 organizations selected, the Herndon, Va.-based company said Monday.
Stu SheaChairman and CEO of Peraton, detailed how the accolade proves the five-year-old company is “charting a sustainable path to long-term success.”
“We have the right strategy, the right people and the right rules in place to stand alongside well-run companies spanning all major U.S. industries,” Shea said, six times Wash100 Price recipient, added.
The honor of America’s Best Managed Companies is awarded to private American companies that are sophisticated strategic planners with a diverse and passionate workforce and strong financial reporting. Peraton stands out as the only Virginia-based company as well as the only company in the group focused on national security.
Peraton was founded in 2017 following Veritas Capital’s acquisition of the government IT services arm of Harris Corporation, combining the federal IT and mission support businesses of Northrop Grumman and Perspecta. His early years in business saw a steady increase in contract awards and consistent public sector-focused work, culminating in a $7 billion national security partner.
According to Shea, Peraton saw “seven times greater expansion in 2021”.
The company is already gearing up for another record year. So far in 2022, Peraton has received several high-profile contracts, including a $254 million win at the State Department for cybersecurity support and a $2.6 billion gain from the Department of Homeland Security for data center and cloud services.
Shea was also recognized with its sixth Wash100 award in the first quarter of the year.
