Peraton is the only Virginia-based company and only national security company to be recognized.
The 51 designees for 2022, including Peraton, are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people and fostering a dynamic, resilient culture, as well as strong financials. This year’s designees—who employ more than 267,000 people—continued to propel their businesses forward by prioritizing purpose, investing in their workforces, and demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
“Peraton is honored to be recognized as a Best Managed Company in the U.S. by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal,” said Stu Shea, chairman, president and CEO. “This recognition underscores the importance of Peraton’s seven-fold expansion in 2021 and validates the significant progress we have made in integrating three heritage companies to create a $7 billion national security leader.
“Being named a Best Managed Company shows that we are charting a sustainable course for long-term success,” said Shea. “We have put in place the right strategy, the right people and the right rules to stand alongside well-run companies spanning every major American business sector.”

They join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 40 countries recognized by the Best Managed Companies program.
