DeETTE GRAY PRESIDENT, BUSINESS AND IT SOLUTIONS, CACI INTERNATIONAL INC., ARLINGTON


Gray, who joined CACI in 2017 as its president of U.S. opera- tions, has been in charge of its international IT offerings for government agencies since 2019. The former middle school teacher and North Carolina native now oversees a signifi- cant sector of the Fortune 500 contractor’s business. Aſter leaving education, Gray worked her way up at Lockheed Martin, where she was vice president of enterprise technology solutions. She served as president of BAE Systems’ intelligence and security sector before she was hired at CACI, which employs 23,000 people and recorded $5 billion in reve- nue last year. In July, CACI was awarded a $1.4 billion task order by the U.S. Department of Defense to continue supporting the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s Decisive Action Task, a contract that can be extended five years. The com- pany also won its largest-ever contract, a $1.5 billion deal with the National Geospatial- Intelligence Agency, in 2020 and added a second $376 million contract with the agency in April to provide mission tech- nology. Gray has won Wash100 Awards for the past five years. A graduate of North


Carolina State and East Carolina universities, she is on AFCEA International’s board of directors.


BRIAN HUSEMAN VICE PRESIDENT OF PUBLIC POLICY, AMAZON.COM INC., ARLINGTON


A former Department of Justice attorney and Federal Trade Commission general counsel, Huseman now is spending his days trying to make sure Amazon is a good neighbor in Arlington, where its $2.5 billion HQ2 is being built. That entails getting permits and meeting construction deadlines and costs, including the $14 million renovation of Metropolitan Park. Aſter leaving the public sector to become Intel Corp.’s senior policy counsel in 2008, Huseman became director of public policy for the Americas at Amazon in 2012. He stepped into his current role in 2016. A graduate of Oklahoma City University, Huseman has spent most of his adult life in Northern


Virginia, including as a special assistant U.S. attorney in Alexandria. He also participated in commu- nity theater for several years and now serves on the board of Arlington’s Signature Theatre. This year, Huseman has weighed in on antitrust legislation advanced in June that targets some of


Amazon’s business practices, the result of a 16-month congressional investigation. Huseman said in a statement that third-party sellers on Amazon — counting more than a half million businesses — will have a harder time earning as much money with the legislation in place.


LAURA K.


IPSEN PRESIDENT AND CEO, ELLUCIAN INC., RESTON


Ipsen has presided over some big changes this year at the


3,100-employee higher education soſtware provider she leads. In May, the company hired longtime Dell Technologies executive Steve Harris as chief revenue officer. And in June, it was announced that Ellucian will be acquired by Blackstone and Vista Equity Partners for an undisclosed amount, with the deal slated to close in the third quarter of this year. More than 2,700 college and university clients use Ellucian’s enterprise-planning soſtware for advising, financial aid, and data and analytics. Coming from Silicon Valley, where she worked for Oracle, Cisco Systems Inc. and Microsoſt Corp., Ipsen says she took the job with Ellucian in 2017 because she liked the visibility of being one of only a handful of women leading large tech companies. She’s organized peer groups that discuss empowering women at Ellucian and is an occasional public speaker, as well as a member of Women Corporate Directors. A University of Virginia alum, Ipsen also stud-


ied Arabic at Yarmouk University in Jordan and is a senior fellow of the Silicon Valley chapter of the American Leadership Forum.
