Name: R. Carl "Shof" Shofner

He set up the Air Force's first IT business analytics unit, which divided spending into IT categories and provides data to help officials better understand savings and efficiencies. Some of the decisions are common sense, and Shofner believes there's no reason to buy new gear when the old stuff works just fine.
