FREDERICKSBURG, Va., March 10, 2022 – Riphean Investments is proud to announce that Chief Growth Officer Kristin Mills has been selected as one of the 2022 Rising Stars of GovCon by DCA Live. She will be recognized at this year’s award event with 28 other highly accomplished individuals for their success and emergence as industry leaders in the Washington GovCon and Tech community.

“It is an honor to be recognized among such a strong group of professionals in government contracting,” said Mills. “I am fortunate to be well supported by our team at Riphean Investments and am grateful for the connections I have been able to make through DCA Live.”

As Chief Growth Officer for Riphean Investments, Mills plays an integral role in guiding the growth of the firm and its partners, supporting go-to-market strategies, strategic planning and marketing efforts. Before joining Riphean, Kristin co-developed a full-scope multi-year strategic growth and go-to-market plan for a mid-tier government contracting firm and led the execution of all re-branding and marketing activities, which in turn led to the firms’ acquisition by a multi-national large business within a year. She also regularly supports community nonprofits including regional economic development and expansion endeavors that promote the Fredericksburg region and business community.
