WashingtonExec recognizes Riverside Research President and CEO, Dr. Steven Omick, as a leader in GovCon by naming him a finalist in its 2022 Chief Officer Award in the Private (Annual Revenue <$150 million) category.
The Chief Officer Award highlights innovative leadership and positive impact on the GovCon community.
Dr. Omick's finalist -selection reflects his commitment to leading Riverside Research to fulfill its mission to serve national security interests by leveraging a not-for-profit status, mitigating the bias of corporate interests.
Under Omick's leadership, Riverside Research recently launched and implemented several initiatives providing high mission impact and value to the national security community. While navigating the support of multiple government programs during the pandemic, Omick guided Riverside Research to focus on Internal Research & Development (IRAD) in areas of most immediate need to government customers.
"Leveraging our not-for-profit advantage allows us to remain informed and adapt quickly to a rapidly changing defense environment," Omick explains. An example is our Commercial Innovation Center (CIC). "By harnessing the talent and information accessible through our CIC and Open Innovation Center and focusing our recruitment and retention efforts on attracting new employees with diverse backgrounds and skill sets, we align ourselves with the federal government's needs every step of the way."
WashingtonExec will recognize Dr. Omick and other named finalists at a special event held in McLean, Virginia on May 11, 2022.
