Federal Contractors/Technology: BILL MONET
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, NANA REGIONAL CORP. INC.; PRESIDENT AND CEO, AKIMA MANAGEMENT SERVICES LLC, HERNDON
An Alaska Native corporation, Akima is the federal arm of the for-profit NANA Regional Corp. owned by more than 14,500 Indigenous Iñupiat shareholders. Akima’s 45 businesses operate throughout the world, with more than 8,000 employees providing a range of services, including construction and facilities maintenance and repair, commercial aviation, information technologies and systems engineering.
Monet joined Akima as its president and CEO in 2012. He received his third consecutive Wash100 award in 2022, which acknowledged Akima’s revenue growth through several major contract wins; the company had its best year ever in fiscal 2021 with revenues of more than $1.6 billion, Monet told WashingtonExec. Akima ranked No. 29 on Washington Technology’s 2022 list of the top 100 federal contractors, slipping a spot from the previous year.
Monet has a bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech, a master’s degree from George Washington University and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School. From late 2020 through much of 2021, he led a restructuring of NANA’s leadership as NANA’s interim president and CEO, subsequently adding the title of chief operating officer for NANA, overseeing business operations and shared services for its commercial companies.
