Randall Cieslak, CIO for U.S. Pacific Command, was among the five award winners in the federal information community announced Feb. 20 by the Navy. Cieslak was named the Navy's Cyberspace/IT Person of the Year for his consolidation of USPACOM networks.

"The strategy he proposed to collapse multiple networks into a shared infrastructure and enhance security with the implementation of Internet Protocol v6 is a model of modernization and transformation activity to be emulated by others," according to a news release from the Navy CIO.

Chris Ferguson, lead applications developer for the Navy's Assistant for Administration, was one of the two Cyberspace/IT Rising Star winners for his role in establishing a DON/AA public portal. The other was Anthony Winns, the unit's customer support lead.

The other winners were: Mark Johnson, director for electromagnetic environmental effects/spectrum policy and programs in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, who claimed the John J. Lussier Electromagnetic Spectrum Leadership Award; and Rebecca Chhim, computer scientist and lead information assurance advisor for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division Newport's Undersea Warfare Combat System Department. The Department of the Navy CIO website was recognized for outstanding achievement in web development by the Web Marketing Association.

Seven of FCW's 2014 Fed 100 winners came from the Navy, including Cieslak.
