B3 taps insider for its new COO

Washington was formerly executive operations advisor to the company's CEO and president.

B3 Solutions has promoted James H. Washington to the position of chief operating officer, where he will provide leadership and vision for B3’s business, as well as its operating strategy.

Washington will also oversee all of the company’s lines of business, including transportation, federal services, homeland security and defense.

As chief operating officer, he will “spearhead the development of effective growth strategies, act as ‘client-care officer’ and foster a customer-oriented environment within the operations team,” said William Almas, B3 CEO.

Before his promotion, Washington was executive operations advisor to the chief executive officer and president.

He was chief operations officer of a government defense contractor before he joined B3, the company said in a release. He has also worked for the Transportation Department and the Federal Aviation Administration, where he served at one point as its chief acquisition officer.

He is chairman of the Air Traffic Control Association, and is also a member of the Executive Advisory Council of the National Contract Management Association.
