Fed 100 winner: Emory Miller

Emory Miller

Senior vice president of government affairs

Robbins-Gioia

Miller spent late nights with agency officials and industry leaders in the information technology community figuring out ways to reverse a growing trend of program failures.

The result was a study that explores the perceptions of government program managers. The one-of-a-kind report proposes groundbreaking legislative and policy changes that could yield better results from federal programs.

Miller kept the initiative alive and finished it in time to deliver the results to newly designated Obama administration officials.

“He kept this thing going against all odds," said Norm Lorentz, adviser to the Partnership for Public Service. "It would have been derailed at many points, but he did not let that happen."
