Cherokee Nation Businesses HQ

TULSA, OK – Cherokee Federal, the federal contracting division of Cherokee Nation Businesses (CNB), announced that it is ranked No. 54 on the top 200 list of federal contractors published by Bloomberg Government in the 11th annual BGOV200. Rankings are based on Fiscal Year 2021 data for unclassified contracts awarded across all U.S. federal government agencies. The organization and its team of companies improved 66 spots from the prior year’s listing.

“It is with great pride that we are consistently called upon to serve our government partners, providing high-quality and mission-critical support here at home and abroad,” said Chuck Garrett, CEO of Cherokee Nation Businesses. “Even more rewarding is the meaningful nature of many of the projects completed over the last year that aligned with the mission of our organization.”

Cherokee Federal’s team of more than 30 tribally owned federal contracting companies manages thousands of projects for more than 60 federal clients across the globe.

“It is an incredible honor to once again be recognized as a top federal contractor by Bloomberg Government,” said Steven Bilby, President of Cherokee Federal. “The dedication and sophistication of our workforce and offerings, combined with superior execution alongside our government partners on critical missions, continues to position our organization on a solid growth trajectory.”

The 11th annual BGOV200 edition is the culmination of extensive data cleansing and analysis of areas such as company hierarchy, contract title, and agency assignments. Data integrity makes this the premier source for government contract practitioners trying to make sense of shifts in the competitive landscape.

“We’re honored to recognize Cherokee Nation Businesses as one of the top federal contractors for fiscal 2021,” said Kerry Lenahan, General Manager and Head of Government Contracting Solutions, Bloomberg Government. “This year’s BGOV200 finds a decline in government contracting spending that aligns with ongoing consolidation of government suppliers, with fewer, bigger contracts going to larger companies. In this environment of increased competition, Bloomberg Government makes it easier for customers to understand the competitive landscape as well as overall market trends and identify the best partners to help their business grow.”
