“I am extremely grateful to be named the next Chairperson of the Rising Stars group, which in my humble opinion is a professional collective that has no equal in the marketplace today. As a Millennial in the government contracting industry, I’m thrilled that a space like this exists to provide a forum for young professionals to learn and grow. As members, we are so fortunate to be privy to this unique mixture of industry-leader speaking engagements as well as less formal meet-and-greets. Through this unprecedented educational and social combination I feel like I’ve not only learned about the members’ professional aspirations, but also the many facets of their humanity. The Rising Stars provides a sense of camaraderie in an otherwise competitive domain. Although you can feel the collective hunger and drive humming at the events, it’s really the generosity and the willingness to further the careers of others that makes this group truly special.” Said Lisa Shea Mundt, Senior Marketing and Proposal Specialist, AOC Key Solutions Inc.
“The Rising Stars of GovCon Committee is a key success story of the Washingtonxec Career Bridge and helps us foster deeper relationships within the community. We at WashingtonExec are honored to have Lisa as our newest Chairperson and are excited to watch her elevate and expand the Committee going forward,” said JD Kathuria, CEO and Founder of WashingtonExec.
