Name: Hudson Hollister
Title: Executive Director
Company: Data Transparency Coalition
Data junkie. Although he studied to be a lawyer, Hollister has spent his career developing policy aimed at replacing paper documents with machine-readable data. He quit a job at the Securities and Exchange Commission because he felt the agency was slow-walking data policy and took a job on Capitol Hill, where he drafted early versions of the Digital Accountability and Transparency Act. As founder of the Data Transparency Coalition, Hollister cajoled legislators to pass a tough version that opened up government spending data. Now that the bill is law, he is keeping an eye on implementation.
