Name: Luke McCormack
Title: Former CIO
Agency/Company: Department of Homeland Security

Leadership for the long term. Few agencies can rival the range and complexity of DHS’ IT operations, and McCormack — whose leadership in the department’s components dates to before its official creation — managed them exceptionally well. He was a leader for cross-agency work on cybersecurity and implementation of the Federal IT Acquisition Reform Act.
