Digital transformer. Collaborating with stakeholders across DHS, Hermus led a groundbreaking initiative to transform IT acquisition and oversight processes to be agile and rely on best practices. Five high-impact programs at different stages of the acquisition life cycle and across multiple DHS components were designated to test changes that will ultimately lead to improved policy and guidance departmentwide. His persistence and passion for the initiative garnered broad leadership support in the face of significant resistance. At the same time, Hermus worked to create a new CTO organization to drive innovation, harness emerging technology and engineer DHS’ digital transformation.
