The U.S. government is changing the competitive landscape. Some of their old ways of doing business can no longer serve today’s mission effectively, and some government contractors are shifting to integrator business models in response. One such company that has adopted this approach is Peraton, helmed by President, Chairman and CEO Stu Shea, a six-time Wash100 Award winner.

“We act as a prime to many small businesses — we have a really aggressive small business portfolio. We do that because we have the capacity to integrate,” Shea said of Peraton’s strategy.

In Executive Mosaic’s latest video interview, we sat down with Shea to talk about the integration status of Peraton’s major 2021 acquisitions, how national security has dramatically changed in recent years, what makes a great company, and how to win today’s talent war.
