Federal 100: Gerard A. Fasano


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

Defense done differently. Fasano was a key force in making Leidos' 2016 merger with Lockheed Martin Information Systems and Global Solutions happen. He is equally adept at developing new models to help customers achieve their missions. 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.
