Name: Gerard A. Fasano
Title: President, Defense Group
Organization: Leidos

In 2019, he led a team that deployed data science as a service for the Air Force's F-16 aircraft, and he championed the company's Special Mission Aircraft for airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. He also helps oversee the Leidos Software Factories that tap into new sources of technical talent — an essential way for the company to grow its staff during an industrywide human capital shortage.
