Gallina secured her first Wash100 Award this year to drive the CIA’s information technology, cloud adoption and reach out across the industry to improve the agency’s success. She succeeded John Edwards as the CIO of the CIA in April 2019.

Since her appointment, she has been instrumental to advancing the agency’s IT capabilities and accelerating the emerging technologies, including cloud adoption’s pivotal role in the CIA’s future and secure mobility within the CIA.

During Potomac Officer Club’s CIO Forum 2020 on Jan. 23rd, Gallina, who served as a keynote speaker at the forum, described that her role in the CIA is to “keep the lights on.” The first step is to keep the lights on, but the greater challenges are buying more light bulbs and planning for the next mode of light bulb. Gallina has continued to navigate her blueprint for the agency into 2020.

The votes continue to flood in as this year’s Wash100 Popular Vote draws to a close on June 1st, and the government contracting (GovCon) community holds the power to determine the most significant executive of consequence to the sector for 2020.

With exactly two weeks left to cast your vote, your decision is more crucial now than it ever has been in the six year history of the award to choose the most notable executive of consequence.
