Geospatial guru. Alexander saved DHS $25 million in six months by implementing an agencywide common operating picture for geographic information systems. Using his tech-savvy leadership, methodical methods and vast knowledge of geospatial enterprises, Alexander produced a tool now used by 3,000 DHS agents -- and did it in three months instead of the scheduled five. By providing structure for disaster management and reducing duplication of effort, his work has improved the government's ability to respond to crises and will lead to expected savings of $100 million in the next three years.
