Federal 100 winner: Sue Dowling

Sue Dowling
Vice president of business development
Data Networks

Despite Dowling’s wide range of responsibilities for Data Networks’ federal and state government customers, she still finds time to support key industry activities.

Dowling was the 2008 industry chairwoman of the Industry Advisory Council's Voyager program, which mentors midlevel managers. She was responsible for instituting the curriculum, creating off-site activities and recruiting senior executives as speakers.

“Sue was a great mentor to all of the industry and government participants,” said Darren Ash, deputy executive director of corporate management at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, who was the government co-chairman of the program. “Through her leadership, she created a strong collaborative learning atmosphere in the program that will benefit the participants throughout their careers."
