LARRY PAYNE LT. COL. MOLLIE PEARSON VENKATAPATHI PUVVADA JEFFREY RECZEK 40 March 30, 2015 FCW.COM Gaurav “GP” Pal Director of Strategic Programs Smartronix Cloud crusader. Pal is on the frontlines of cloud migration at Smartronix. He led the implementation of FedRAMP-compliant cloud broker solutions for the Interior Department and was heavily involved in the migration of Recovery.gov to Amazon’s public cloud, which saved the government more than $750,000 and earned the distinc- tion of being the first federal enterprise system to be hosted in a public cloud. Pal was also instrumental in migrating Trea- sury.gov to Amazon’s Virtual Private Cloud and cutting Treasury’s monthly hosting costs by 13 percent. Larry Payne Area Vice President for U.S. Federal Sales Cisco Intelligent innovation. In between as- sisting such agencies as the Navy and the Defense Information Systems Agency with their IT projects, Payne lends his expertise to helping the intelligence and military communities connect with one another. He encourages the federal IT community to think differently about technology and shows executives how to embrace innova- tion within their budgetary constraints. He is also involved in charitable work and raised a record $317,000 during the Leuke- mia and Lymphoma Society’s annual cam- paign, a feat that earned him the group’s “Man of the Year” designation. Lt. Col. Mollie Pearson Product Manager for Power Projection Enablers Program Executive Office for Enterprise Information Systems U.S. Army Global networker. Think your data center project is tough? Try tackling one in Kuwait or South Korea. Pearson, who is on the list for full colonel, leads the implemen- tation of network modernization for the Army around the world and is responsible for the service’s strategic IT infrastructure across five continents and 16 time zones. In 2014, she ran the successful execu- tion of more than $1 billion in enterprise investments while managing what PEO EIS leader Doug Wiltsie labeled “the most com- plex and diverse IT portfolio” in PEO EIS. Venkatapathi Puvvada Acting President Unisys Federal Systems Stepping up. It is no surprise that Puv- vada’s turn as acting president ended with him being given the position permanently. He is known for driving success at the personnel, project and strategic levels, and last year led the effort to migrate the Interior Department’s enterprise financial systems to a secure cloud environment after the company was the first to win a task order under the department’s cloud services contract. He was also instrumental in Unisys’ investment in mobile and agile development capabilities at its Application Modernization Center of Excellence in St. Louis, which resulted in new contracts and a 100 percent increase in staffing levels. Jeffrey Reczek Program Examiner Office of Management and Budget Optimizing open enrollment. Health- Care.gov’s second open-enrollment season didn’t generate nearly the same kind of headlines as the ill-fated 2013 debut, thanks in part to Reczek’s behind-the- scenes work. He helped improve enroll- ment activities by making sure the site’s Data Hub smoothly routed enrollee infor- mation among relevant agencies. He also used the PortfolioStat process to enhance IT service delivery at the Department of Health and Human Services. As one of his supporters said, Reczek “sets a standard... on how to collaborate to resolve issues and continue to drive results and performance in IT programs.” THE2015FEDERAL100 0330fcw_022-047.indd 40 3/9/15 11:27 AM
