For Chantilly, Virginia-based American Systems, 2014 has been a year of changeÂ for the company’s top leaders asÂ Peter Smith elevated to CEOÂ in August and succeeded Bill Hoover, who retired from American Systems after nine years as chief executive.
Smith joined the company in 1980, five years after its founding, and served as its chief operating officer for four years prior to his appointment as CEO.
Agilex, also based in Chantilly, wasÂ recognized this year for its growth initiatives by the Washington Business Journal, which named the company to the newspaper’s “Fast 50” list for the fifth consecutive year.
Joe Donohue, chief financial officer for Agilex, discussed that selection and the company’s growth prospects during a wide-ranging Q&A with ExecutiveBiz in October.
