Name: Maria Roat
Title: CIO
Agency/Company: Small Business Administration

Upping the tempo at DOT. Prior to her role at SBA, Roat served as the Transportation Department’s first full-time CTO in four years. The former director of the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program helped create a cloud sandbox for DOT to test ideas before putting them into production. By establishing a 10-week schedule with two-week delivery sprints, her office built a dashboard that provides a visualization of DOT’s safety data that can be combined with information on time of day, ZIP codes and weather patterns to reveal when accidents are more likely to occur and thereby help shape safety regulations.
