Olga Grkavac wins 2015 President's Award

At FCW's 26th annual Federal 100 awards gala on March 26, Olga Grkavac was honored with the 2015 President's Award.

Grkavac, who retired in 2012, was a senior executive for TechAmerica and its predecessor organizations for 31 years, and before that was a key aide on Capitol Hill. Though now splitting her time between Virginia and the Eastern Shore, she remains a frequent counsel to a wide range of senior officials in both government and industry.

Trey Hodgkins, who succeeded Grkavac at TechAmerica and now leads the Information Technology Alliance for Public Sector, explained her influence in the federal IT community this way: "All the groundwork and foundation work for almost every issue, almost every policy, almost every technology the government is adopting today, Olga has a major role it."

The President's Award is intended to recognize individuals whose quiet leadership and long-term contributions might otherwise slip under the radar. The video below explains in greater detail why Grkavac's influence and legacy certainly warrant the honor.
