Houston - (February 18, 2020) - KBR (NYSE: KBR) is pleased to announce that Executive Mosaic has selected Byron Bright, KBR's Government Solutions U.S. President, as a 2020 Wash 100 award winner, honoring him as one of the most impactful and influential leaders in the government contracting industry.  

The Wash100 Award recognizes executives that have demonstrated excellence in their leadership, innovation, reliability, achievements and vision.

Bright leads KBR’s Government Solutions business segment which pioneers solutions for the U.S. military, NASA and other government customers around the world. Bright joined KBR in 2010 and has served in multiple roles including vice president of business development and senior vice president for the logistics business.

Prior to KBR, he worked in the aerospace and defense industry supporting large engineering services efforts. Bright also served as an U.S. Air Force officer primarily in a developmental test and engineering career field. He flew in more than 25 different aircraft as a flight test engineer.

"I am grateful for this award and see it as a reflection of those who I am privileged to lead,” said Bright. “From forging the future of space travel to advancing technologies for defense systems, I am grateful to lead a team of teams who passionately works together to solve our customers’ most difficult challenges."

Under Bright’s leadership, KBR Government Solutions U.S., which has more than 15,000 employees, generated $2.6 billion in revenue in 2018. After three major acquisitions, he oversaw the integration of these companies into the organization, which strengthened and positioned KBR for long-term stability and growth. 

According to Executive Mosaic, a leadership committee carefully selected the winners for the prestigious award.

"We are pleased to honor the recipients of the 2020 Wash100 Award. This is our seventh consecutive year recognizing executives most likely to make contributions of significance to the GovCon sector," said Jim Garrettson, Executive Mosaic's founder and CEO.
