Professional Services 2023: HORACIO D. ROZANSKI
PRESIDENT AND CEO, BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON, McLEAN
Rozanski joined the Fortune 500 global management, technology, engineering and consulting firm Booz Allen in 1991 as an intern in Buenos Aires, ultimately rising to CEO in 2015 after holding other leadership positions such as chief operating officer.
Booz Allen employs 10,707 people in Virginia and 31,925 worldwide and reported fiscal year 2022 earnings of $9.26 billion. Rozanski is credited with playing a central role in strategic initiatives like Vision 2020, which expanded engineering and systems delivery, and the formation of Booz Allen’s $100 million venture capital arm in 2022.
In May, the Defense Department awarded Booz Allen a five-year contract valued at $919 million for Army combat support. In July, the company agreed to pay the U.S. government $377.4 million to settle allegations of improperly billing commercial and international costs to its government contracts, according to the Justice Department. Booz Allen did not admit liability in the agreement, which it said it had entered into to avoid protracted litigation.
Rozanski chairs the Children’s National Medical Center’s board and is a member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Committee on Conscience. He was a 2022 recipient of the Horatio Alger Award.
