DANBURY, Conn., March 5, 2024 – Andreas Nonnenmacher, president of ARKA Group, L.P., has been named to the 2024 Wash100, an annual listing of executives predicted to have the greatest impact on the government contracting and federal sectors during the year.

Launched in 2014, the Wash100 honorees are hand-picked by Executive Mosaic, an international leadership organization and media company that also considers an individual’s achievements in leadership, innovation and vision. According to Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 announcement, Nonnenmacher was selected for “driving defense innovation and for spearheading ARKA’s integration and growth efforts.”

“As ARKA continues to grow, we’re honored to be recognized for our work supporting national security space and technology,” said Nonnenmacher, as quoted in the Wash100 announcement. “To be among such an inspiring class of honorees is both exciting and humbling. I’m proud to lead such a dedicated team and bring world class solutions to our customers and the nation. It may be my name on the award, but this is a recognition of the entire ARKA team’s great work and our bright future.”

The Wash100 celebration now moves into the second phase, in which supporters are asked to vote for their top 10 candidates listed among the 100 nominees. Winners will be announced in April.
