Wendy Masiello, a lieutenant general for the Air Force and director of the Defense Contract Management Agency, was recognized Thursday for her selection to receive the Greater Washington Government Contractor Awards‘ “Public Sector Partner of the Year” honor.

In their announcement of her selection, the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce and Professional Services Council said Masiello was selected for the distinction as the “public sector leader who has done the most to promote effective partnership between the sectors.”

Masiello, who took the helm at DCMA earlier this year and was promoted to her third-star, oversees an agency responsible for the administration of all contracts and coordination with industry partners to maintain costs and schedules for products and services.
