GCN names executives of year, Hall of Fame inductee

Dorris, Carey, Lewis and Davis to be honored at October gala

Government Computer News has announced its executives of the year and Hall of Fame winners.

The winners are selected by the Government Computer News editorial board and recognize technology excellence in government by individuals who have shown innovation, dedication, and excellence in their achievements during the past year.

The awards will be presented at the 22nd annual GCN Awards Gala on Oct, 22 at the Washington Hilton and Towers. The event is attended annually by more than 1,000 senior government technology leaders and executives from government contractors nationwide.

The GCN Executives of the Year for 2009 are:

DOD Executive of the Year: Robert Carey, chief information officer, Department of the Navy.

Civilian Executive of the Year: Martha Dorris, deputy associate administrator, Office of Citizen Services and Communications, General Services Administration.

Industry Executive of the Year: James Lewis, director and senior fellow, Technology and Public Policy Program, Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Hall of Fame: Tom Davis, federal government relations director for Deloitte and former congressman from Virginia.

“Each of these executives of the year, through their leadership and by their example, have made a significant impact this past year in showing how information technology can be more effectively harnessed by the government,” said Wyatt Kash, editor in chief of Government Computer News. “The induction of former Virginia Congressman Tom Davis into GCN’s Hall of Fame reflects his long-standing contributions to the government IT community — particularly in his role as chairman of the House Government Reform Committee.”

Why to Fed 100 awards recognize do-nothing CIOs whose only job is to speak at events and glad hand with vendors. The Fed 100 is losing its objectively and appears to only recognize govt leaders who have pandered to marketing interests most. GCN is losing its objectively as a credible news publication as a result.
