Defense Information Systems Agency
Maj. Gen. Marilyn Quagliotti, DISA's vice director, made contributions to DISA and the federal information technology community that will have a positive and lasting impact for years to come.
As vice director, Quagliotti is responsible for running the day-to-day business at DISA, one of the government's largest agencies. "It takes a lot of leadership to run an organization this size, and it's generally not the director that does it," said Lt. Gen. Charles Croom, director of DISA.
"It's the deputy director, because the director is out there glad-handing on the road. We've 30 or 40 sites around the world, so [the director is] gallivanting around."
