MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Defense Technology & Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: GTEC), a provider of mission-critical, technology-based systems, solutions and services for national security agencies and programs of the U.S. government, is proud to announce that President & CEO John Hillen was named to the Federal 100 list just published by Federal Computer Week magazine.
The Federal 100 Awards recognize government and industry leaders who have played pivotal roles in the federal government IT technology community -- individuals who have gone above and beyond their daily responsibilities and have made a difference in the way technology has transformed their agency or accelerated their agency's mission. Dr. Hillen was nominated based on the success GTEC experienced during its first full year as a public company, including strong organic growth in key national security IT programs and the addition of two significant cyber security acquisitions, Zytel Corporation and Signature Government Solutions, LLC.
John Hillen commented, "I am honored to be named to Federal Computer Week's Federal 100 list. This is really a recognition of GTEC's emergence as an agile, mid-sized prime contractor with differentiated technology solutions that enable our national security customers to realize mission success."
