Federal 100 winner: Joseph Camacho

Joseph Camacho

Program director for the Joint Knowledge Development and Distribution Capability

Joint Forces Command

Camacho was the driving force of an overhaul of the Defense Department's training capabilities.

In less than two years, Camacho’s team dramatically improved the content and cost-effective availability of training tools that personnel around the world need. The unit’s distance learning has been described as a force multiplier for military joint training, with greater numbers of personnel receiving training before arriving in theater operations.

“Mr. Camacho is a visionary and leader able to staff, organize and build teams of government service managers and contractors to a cohesive, productive force,” said Robert Wisher, director of the Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
