Title: Chief Data Officer, Office of the CIO
Agency: General Services Administration

Rowley has forged a model of data management for the rest of the government by providing secure, cost-effective data management solutions that can improve efficiency. His project, Data2Decision, provides a secure setting to share data from across GSA and other agencies that can help officials make informed decisions on an array of topics. As useful as it sounds, Rowley initially had to convince executives that his project had value. "We did this without a mandate," he said. "There was no requirement. We just thought it would be better."
