Guy Cavallo has a lifelong passion for leveraging technology to improve the delivery of government services and capabilities to our citizens. He joined SBA as the Deputy CIO in 2017 as the next step in his career, which has been almost evenly split between the private and public sectors. Before rejoining the federal government in 2015, Cavallo spent almost two decades in the private sector implementing innovative technologies in state and local government entities, including nine years as a Senior Government Technology Advisor at the Microsoft Corporation.
In 2018, Cavallo received both the Federal 100 and the fedScoop 50 for Federal Technology Leadership awards for his leadership of SBA’s modernization efforts. He received his first Federal 100 award twenty years earlier for his leadership in standing up the Corporation for National Service. He was recently nominated for the fedScoop Best Bosses in Federal IT award.
