The Army’s IT disruptor. Smith is one of the key leaders of the Army’s efforts to transform its IT and business systems. She oversees 37 product offices, 71 acquisition programs and 3,000 personnel and has led initiatives to modernize the way the Army handles talent and stakeholder management and network integration. Brendan Burke, the Army’s deputy PEO-EIS, calls Smith “a known disruptor, with a sharp focus on innovation and the bottom line.” Last year, Smith also opened the Defensive Cyber Operations’ “Forge” facility so partners from academia and industry could collaborate with the Army on emerging technology and cyberthreats.
