Rising Star Richard J. Renomeron

Richard RenomeronName: Rich Renomeron (pronounced Rehn-oh-MARE-on)

Age: 37

Organization: Turner Consulting Group

Title: Senior engineer and project lead

Nominated for: Leading a team of engineers that provides the Office of Management and Budget with an array of systems for developing budgets, including the much-lauded Max Federal Community wiki. Developed a governmentwide authentication and authorization system so that Max users can securely access any OMB services.

First IT mentor: Dave Tomczak — he was the first technical lead I worked with when I was fresh out of grad school, and he taught me a lot about how to handle different personalities on a team. This came in handy when I found myself in leadership positions some years later.

Latest accomplishment: Refactoring the customizations to our single-sign-on application so that we can be more responsive to new requirements from external customers, which seem to be coming faster and faster these days.

Career highlight: This award

Favorite bookmark: The Max Federal Community (max.omb.gov/community). I’m not just a developer, I’m a user!

Dream non-IT-related job: In no particular order: singer in a rock-and-roll band, artistic photographer or stay-at-home dad.
