Kevin Wideman named CEO of Koniag Government Services
After 30 years of leading and growing several mid to large-sized government contracting organizations, Kevin Wideman has joined Koniag Government Services (KGS) as its new chief executive officer, the Chantilly, VA-based company announced August 17.

I look forward to working with Koniag’s board and our employees, serving our customers, and growing our business to provide benefits for our shareholders,” Wideman said. “I am very anxious to commence this next chapter of my professional career.”
Kevin joins KGS after most recently serving as president of Federal/Civilian Mission IT Solutions for a large federal government contractor, where he directed operations and business development for the largest portfolio of programs within its Operating Group.
