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
Our IT man in Europe. Chase's peers credit him with demonstrably improving the network security of U.S. European Command -- a notable accomplishment given that command's interoperability challenges. It coordinates with militaries from more than 50 countries, each with its own IT systems and policies. 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.
