2019 Fed 100
Federal 100: Gary Durst
Name: Gary Durst
Title: Director of Logistics, Air Force Business and Enterprise Systems Directorate
Agency: U.S. Air Force
An EMT for enterprise systems. Durst spearheaded the establishment of a servicewide incident response team to quickly resolve system outages affecting Air Force financial and business operations. Within 24 hours of identifying what was blocking $2 billion worth of financial transactions from processing, Durst’s quick response team had properly configured the server in question and processed 80,000 transactions. And when a technical issue with a legacy contract-writing system kept multiple installations from executing any contracts, the team quickly identified and fixed the problem. He also played a key role in an effort that will guide the next 10 years of planning and executing business and supporting IT capabilities.
