Peraton is proud to announce it has been selected for the second time as a U.S. Best Managed Company Sponsored by Deloitte* Private and The Wall Street Journal. The 2023 program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies across 31 cities and the achievements of their management teams.

The 2023 designees are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people and fostering a dynamic culture, as well as strong financials. Designees propelled their businesses forward and remained true to their purpose and values by investing in their people, creating advantage through digital transformation, taking measurable action on sustainability, and demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Following our acquisitions, the team and I strategically prioritized investing in the right people, technology, and solutions to support our customer missions without compromising our organizational integrity,” said Stu Shea, chairman, president, and CEO, Peraton. “We are honored to once again be recognized as a Best Managed Company for remaining true to our mission and our values while still meeting the bottom line.”

Applicants are evaluated and selected by a panel of external judges focused on assessing hallmarks of excellence in four key areas: strategy, ability to execute, corporate culture, and governance/financial performance. The winners then join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 46 countries recognized by the Best Managed Companies program.
