Federal 100: Col. Robert King

2020 Federal 100 Winner 

Name: Col. Robert King
Title: Senior Materiel Leader, Enterprise IT and Cyber Infrastructure Division
Organization: U.S. Air Force

Truly enterprise IT. King has guided his division as it grew from a $3.9 billion budget and 600 employees to an organization with a $6.9 billion budget and more than 900 employees. He oversaw the division's $700 million CloudOne project, consolidated 14 data centers down to two and moved the organization toward a zero-trust security architecture. When the National Defense Authorization Act established a new military branch — the Space Force — King helped transition more than 55,000 personnel to their new service designation in the Global Address List within 10 days of the legislation's passage.
