Executive Mosaic is honored to introduce Sam Gordy, general manager of IBM‘s (NYSE: IBM) U.S. federal and government industries, as an inductee into the 2017 edition of the Wash100 — Executive Mosaic’s annual selection of influential leaders in the government contracting arena.

Gordy succeeded Anne Altman as federal GM in January 2016 after time as integrated systems group president at Leidos‘ (NYSE: LDOS) national security segment, where he led strategy development and execution, business development and financial performance functions.

He held a 22-year career at Leidos’ predecessor company Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) that included included technical analysis, program management and line management roles.

In February 2016, IBM obtained an authorization from the Defense Information Systems Agency to deliver IBM Cloud services at the highest security levels for the Defense Department‘s controlled and unclassified information.

Gordy said at the time IBM Cloud will give DoD agencies “an ideal option to launch workloads in a hybrid cloud that can be easily integrated with their on premise systems.”

Also in 2016, IBM received a potential five-year, $62 million contract from the U.S. Army to develop, manage and operate a cloud platform as part of the Army Private Cloud Enterprise program.

“This IBM Cloud solution will provide the Army with greater flexibility and will go a long way toward mitigating, and, in some cases eliminating, the security challenges inherent with multiple ingress and egress points,” Gordy said.

Executive Mosaic congratulates Sam Gordy and the IBM team for their selection to receive this award.
