The hacker evangelist. Park, who became federal CTO in March 2012, has been a cheerleader for innovation in government and an ambassador to the non-federal tech communities.

Under Park’s direction, one agency executive said, several of those projects are poised "to deliver breakneck-speed innovations to government."
