Federal 100: Ashwin Vasan

Name: Ashwin Vasan
Title: Chief Information Officer
Agency: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

The team builder. Vasan built a team of technologists by using remote and term fellowships to tap a nationwide talent pool. His approach has been so successful that 18F and the U.S. Digital Service have adopted it. He also helped deliver AskCFPB, an interactive tool that answers 1,000-plus frequently asked questions, and Owning a Home, Paying for College and Planning for Retirement tools designed to guide consumers through major financial decisions. He championed the adoption of agile development, open-source practices and a cloud-centric strategy, all of which have enabled CFPB to build great public-facing tools while making its own internal processes more efficient.
