The work: Leading two teams seeking to achieve IT efficiencies in data center consolidation and the Navy Marine Corps Portal.

The nuts and bolts: Darrow oversaw the implementation of the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative across the Navy Department — an effort of unprecedented magnitude and complexity. He is also helping to redefine the Navy’s Web portal requirements and identify duplicative efforts, excess capacity and cost-saving opportunities.
