Chief Executive Officer & Publisher
Jim Garrettson founded Executive Mosaic in 2001 in an effort to build an exclusive forum and cross media platform exclusively for top-tier executives in the greater Washington D.C. market. His efforts produced an array of highly specialized internet-based media properties, publications and event driven executive peer groups. Sensing the continued growth of the Government Contracting community and consolidation of the mid-tier companies, Garrettson evolved his models and efforts to strategically pursue this key market segment. Today, 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.

Subsequent organizational founding’s also include GovConWire – a daily news wire and reporting organization dedicated to Government Contracting, GovConExecutive – an organizational who’s who in Government Contracting, The New New Internet – an ongoing effort that tracks the technology that supports the government’s leading edge IT initiatives and ExecutiveGov – which tracks the key government executives that make the decisions which most strongly impact the market segment of Government contracting and included current, transitional and former government executives.
