Federal 100: Brig. Gen. Peter A. Gallagher

Name: Brig. Gen. Peter A. Gallagher
Title: Director of Command and Control, Communications and Computer Systems
U.S. Central Command
Agency: U.S. Army

Wired for battle. Gallagher is in charge of the global computer network underpinning U.S. Central Command. The fight against the Islamic State has changed how the military communicates, and Gallagher has been at the forefront of that change. He and his team have used data center virtualization to help manage mission networks and, in doing so, capitalized on nimble communication structures to give the military eyes where it doesn't have boots, saving time and money. Gallagher's impact will be long-lasting: Future networks will be able to spring up quickly to support soldiers worldwide.
