Oct 3, 2023

The Presidential Rank Award of Distinguished Executive, approved and signed by the President of the United States, is the highest award for career Senior Executive Service (SES) members for "sustained extraordinary accomplishment."

We are thrilled to announce that our very own Mike Kim, Red Alpha Chief Technology Officer, has been honored with the prestigious Presidential “Distinguished” Rank Award. The Presidential Rank Award of Distinguished Executive is the highest award for career Senior Executive Service (SES) members. The President of the United States approved and signed the award. Mike also received The Presidential “Meritorious” Rank Award in 2016, the second-highest award for selected career Senior Executive Service (SES) members. Rarely does a Senior Executive receive both Distinguished and Meritorious Rank awards.

Throughout his career, Mike Kim has consistently delivered impact to the mission, at times through heroic service. His unwavering commitment to the Intelligence Community's mission and ability to lead innovation development have set him apart as a true leader.

The Presidential Rank Award acknowledges what we’ve already grown to love about Mike. This well-deserved recognition is a testament to his remarkable talent, hard work, and dedication to serving the public. We are fortunate to follow his leadership as he seeks to transform our intelligence community while positioning Red Alpha as the market leader.

Join us as we congratulate our CTO, Mike Kim, on this remarkable achievement and express our profound appreciation for his invaluable contributions to the intelligence community!

*The Presidential Rank Awards program is an individual award program granted by the US government to career Senior Executive Service (SES) members within the Senior-Level (SL) or Scientific-Professional (ST) community. The President of the US has given the awards annually since the establishment of the Senior Executive Service in 1978. The Presidential Rank Award honors high-performing senior career employees for "sustained extraordinary accomplishment." Executives from across the government are nominated by their agency heads, evaluated by citizen panels, and designated by the president. Winners of these awards are deemed to be "strong leaders," professionals, or scientists who "achieve results" and "consistently demonstrate strength, integrity, industry, and a relentless commitment to excellence in public service."
