Anne Armstrong and Stan Soloway are the winners of the CES Government 2016 Technology Leadership Award, which was announced Jan. 4 at the CES Government conference in Las Vegas.

Soloway stepped down as president of the Professional Services Council in December after 15 years leading that organization. Prior to PSC, he was the Defense Department's deputy undersecretary for acquisition reform during the Clinton administration.

Armstrong is co-president and chief content officer of 1105 Public Sector Media Group (the parent company of FCW) and one of the founding editors of FCW.

"Individually or together, Anne and Stan have no peers in terms of the broad and positive impact they have had, and continue to have, on our government tech sector," said the Upson Technology Group's Don Upson, who manages the Government Business Executive Forum that produces the CES Government conference.

The award honors "a long history of significant leadership in and for the technology community," Brad Antle, president and CEO of Salient Federal Solutions, told FCW.

Antle, who presented Soloway's award, praised the former PSC president for his wide range of advocacy efforts to "help inform and educate a very broad audience on policies and practices that impact our collective best interests" in government IT.

Cisco Senior Director and Distinguished Fellow Alan Balutis, who presented Armstrong's award, told FCW that she is "unmatched as a leader and mentor and facilitator of dialogue." In the federal IT community, he said, "virtually every good tech reporter has worked for her at some time or another," learning how to drive the important conversations.

Sage Communications Executive Vice President Steve Vito agreed. Noting that he'd been her competitor and colleague at different times, Vito said, "Whether a champion or a critic, [Armstrong] holds an uncanny grasp of the important issues impacting this important business."
