Central Intelligence Agency CIO Doug Wolfe was named GCN's Agency Exec of the Year at the Oct. 14 GCN Gala in Tysons Corner, Va. The award recognized Wolfe's leadership in moving the intelligence community to the cloud -- a project, first reported by FCW in 2013, that became operational this summer.

Lockheed Martin's Sondra Barbour, who present Wolfe's award, said such change agency was no surprise. "Over the course of a 30-year career," she said, "Doug has led efforts to knock down barriers between silos of data and analysis...and encouraged the adoption of IT and software to traditionally slow-moving organizations."

FireEye Vice President and Global Government CTO Tony Cole won GCN's Industry Executive of the Year award, while Army Deputy CIO/GG Mike Krieger was honored with the Hall of Fame award. FCW's 2014 Rising Stars were also recognized, and 10 teams -- representing the Air Force, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Internal Revenue Service, National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Navy, along with several state and local efforts -- won the GCN awards that are the cornerstone of the event.
