2019 Fed 100

Title: CTO, Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services

Health care curator. Saxon oversees the applications and infrastructure behind HealthCare.gov, which is in the process of moving more than 20 IT applications and related data to the cloud. The transition is a tricky proposition given the complex mix of stakeholders behind HealthCare.gov, but Saxon has gracefully managed the three-stage process behind the move and demonstrated an ability to respond quickly to any issues that arise. Thanks to his efforts, the health insurance site will have increased capacity around peak enrollment periods, and CMS will save money by consolidating three data centers into a single cloud-based solution.
