June 17, 2021

Washington, DC (June 17, 2021) — GovExec, the leading information services company serving government leaders and contractors, unveiled the top-performing government contractors, according to the 2021 Leading Brands in Government study, conducted by Government Business Council (GBC), GovExec’s research division.

“Despite what have felt like monumental shifts on at least a personal and day-to-day level due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our 2021 Leading Brands findings have shown that a core foundation based on the key Leading Brands attributes and values provides stability through crisis,” said Tim Hartman, CEO of GovExec  

GBC surveyed over 2,834 federal, defense, and state and local government officials on their perceptions of 83 contractors for the 2021 Leading Brands study. Respondents were asked to consider criteria including brand familiarity and favorability, as well as eight key attributes identified as highly important to government purchasers — trustworthiness, customer service, experience, expertise, value, innovation, solution customization, and employee care — to ultimately select the top contractors that perform above the rest.

“Leading Brands has consistently raised the bar by evolving our methods of study to recognize the best of the best among government contractors,” said Tim Hartman, CEO of GovExec. “These companies are setting new standards of excellence in the government marketplace and standing out from the competition.
