RESTON, Va., Feb. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) today announced that Venkatapathi "PV" Puvvada, president of Unisys Federal, has been inducted into the Executive Mosaic 2019 Wash100 recognizing the most influential leaders in the U.S. federal government contracting arena.
This designation marks the fifth time in six years that Puvvada has been recognized by Executive Mosaic in its Wash100 list of executives who have demonstrated "skills in leadership, innovation, achievement and vision." A blog post on Executive Mosaic's ExecutiveBiz website cited Puvvada "for his leadership and his efforts advancing IT modernization, acquisition, big data and cloud computing offerings."
ExecutiveBiz also lauded Puvvada's thought leadership, noting his many contributions to news outlets that report on the U.S. federal government's IT activities. It noted his series of opinion pieces and interviews in Federal Computer Week, Federal News Network, the GovConWire news agency and in ExecutiveBiz itself.
Puvvada has been the recipient of numerous other industry awards over the course of his career, including four Federal Computer Week Federal 100 Awards and the publication's prestigious Eagle Award, which each year recognizes a single private sector executive as "the best of the best" in federal IT. In 2018, he was re-elected as chair of the board of directors for the Professional Services Council (PSC), a group that represents the federal professional and technical services industry. As PSC chair, he initiated a strategic refresh of the organization to increase its value to members. And in 2018, PSC signed the highest level of new membership in its history.
He also has been active as a leader of the Industry Advisory Council, a public-private partnership organization dedicated to advancing government and industry partnership through the improved application of information technology.
"Beyond his work leading Unisys' federal government business, PV is a true leader within the U.S. federal government IT community in general," said Peter Altabef, chairman and chief executive officer of Unisys. "The Wash100 award is further recognition of his willingness to collaborate with clients as well as other companies to solve problems that ultimately affect all U.S. citizens. We congratulate PV on his success."
