As CEO, Hoover leads one of the largest privately-held employee-owned companies in the U.S., which means “every employee at AMERICAN SYSTEMS has a personal stake in our company’s success,” Hoover said in his message from the CEO.
“That translates into a personal commitment to produce the best work for every customer,” Hoover added. “For more than 35 years, we’ve raised the bar higher, and our customers have come to expect this.”
Hoover started and led several consulting business prior to joining AMERICAN SYSTEMS and has played a formative role in shaping its current operations and plans for the future by leading the development of its corporate vision and strategy.
The former U.S. Navy Officer has previously been recognized as Executive of the Year at the 2009 Greater Washington Area Contracting Awards and was recognized as part of the Federal100 that same year.
The foundation Hoover has laid suggests more awards may be around the corner.
“This strategy seems to be working,” Hoover told GovCon Exec. “Calendar year 2012 was the best new business bookings year in the company’s then-37-year history and the last six months of CY/2012 and the first 6-months of CY/2013 was the best 12-month new business bookings period in company history.”
“This all occurred during one of the most challenging and competitive periods in this century.”
The Wash100 is a group of private and public sectors officially elected by Executive Mosaic’s organizational and editorial leadership for demonstrating a consistent commitment to organizational excellence, and driving above-average value to the American public through strategic vision, innovation and achievement.
Executive Mosaic inducts new leaders each year, but the recognition is earned over a career of work.
Tysons Corner, Va.-based Executive Mosaic is the only cross-platform media company that captures leading GovCon Executives’ perspectives on the latest developments and significant activity across government and industry.
Its media properties GovCon Wire, ExecutiveBiz, ExecutiveGov, and GovCon Executive serve as the most comprehensive source of original executive content in the industry.
