ExecutiveGov, published by Executive Mosaic, is a site dedicated to the news and headlines in the federal government. ExecutiveGov serves as a news source for the hot topics and issues facing federal government departments and agencies such as Gov 2.0, cybersecurity policy, health IT, green IT and national security. We also aim to spotlight various federal government employees and interview key government executives whose impact resonates beyond their agency.
Meet our team:
Jim Garrettson, CEO & Publisher, Executive Mosaic
Jim Garrettson founded Executive Mosaic, publisher of ExecutiveGov.com, in 2008 to build an exclusive forum and cross-media platform for top executives in Washington’s government contracting community. He has created a prestigious series of private networking communities for top executives, and serves as publisher for the growing number of Executive Mosaic online and print media outlets, including GovConWire.com, TheNewNewInternet.com, GovConExecutive.com, and a popular print magazine, GovConExec.
As a precursor to Executive Mosaic, Garrettson also founded the Potomac Officers Club (POC) in 2002, a 501(c)6 non-profit organization whose mission is “to weave an executive fabric that benefits our local business community.” That organization and the associated e-magazine he co-founded in 2003 (ExecutiveBiz) served a pronounced need at the time for connecting the Washington business community.
A serial entrepreneur and veteran of the fast-growth technology and telecommunications industries, Garrettson is founder and president of TownHall Teleconferencing, and earlier served as EVP of sales and marketing at Net2000 Communications, SVP of North American sales for Cidera, president of Teleglobe Business Solutions, and SVP of sales at Qwest Communications where he ran the National General Business sales force.
