2020 Fed 100

Name: Paul Smith
Title: Senior Vice President and General Manager, Public Sector
Organization: Red Hat

Among the many wins for Red Hat customers in 2019, a digital Puckboard application replaced a previously manual process and dramatically improved aircraft and pilot scheduling for the Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force.
