Federal Contractors | Technology 2023: BILL MONET
PRESIDENT AND CEO, AKIMA, HERNDON
With more than 9,500 worldwide employees, 24% of whom are veterans, Akima is an Alaska Native corporation that handles federal contracts for the for-profit NANA Regional business owned by Indigenous Iñupiat shareholders.
Monet, who serves as chief operating officer of NANA in addition to his duties as CEO and president of subsidiary Akima, has more than 30 years of experience in modernizing processes for federal, state, local and commercial clients.
In June, Akima was awarded a seven-year, $199.77 million contract to provide base operations support for the 81st Training Wing at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi, and in July, the company closed its acquisition of Alabama-based defense contractor Pinnacle Solutions for an undisclosed amount.
A Virginia Tech alum, Monet has an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and a master’s degree in science from George Washington University.
HOBBY/PASSION: I have a deep interest in architecture and photography. Most recently, our leadership team has partnered with OTJ Architects in a uniquely collaborative and culturally driven process that would translate the rich Iñupiat heritage and values into a destination headquarters.
