Federal 100: Jack Albright

Name: Jack Albright
Title: Associate CIO for IT Shared Services

Second, he nailed down funding and worked to create a more efficient software-configured network for DOT. Third, he closed down a 10-year-old “temporary” data center and moved its capabilities into a governmentwide data center, which saved money and dramatically improved the center's disaster recovery capabilities.
