Federal 100 winner: William Hoover

William Hoover

Chief Executive Officer

American Systems

Hoover created a centralized, process-driven plan for American Systems Corp. in 2008, which is pushing the company toward its goal of being a tier-one contractor in the federal market. The plan relied on organic growth last year but Hoover continues to also focus on mergers and acquisitions as part of the company's strategy.

Last year, American Systems built a new business pipeline valued at more than $13 billion, and the company also scored major contract wins with the Army, Marine Corps and the Interior Department.

“Bill Hoover is one of those quiet leaders who commands respect across the industry and among his government customers,” said Stan Soloway, president and CEO of the Professional Services Council. “His strategic acumen is matched only by an uncommon humility and thoughtful nature that has marked an exceptional career.”
