Federal 100: Brig. Gen. Welton Chase Jr.

Name: Brig. Gen. Welton Chase Jr.
Title: Director of C4/Cyber
U.S. European Command
Agency: U.S. Army

Chase's work has allowed U.S. troops in Europe to communicate more securely with their allies and helped establish "an enhanced, common approach to software, hardware, IT systems and C4/cyber policies throughout the European theater," one colleague said. Chase honed his IT skills by serving as a division chief on the Joint Staff and as an assistant to the chairman.
