This year, we welcome 22 more individuals and three teams into the ranks of Government Technology’s Top 25 Doers, Dreamers and Drivers, bringing the total number of honorees to more than 400 since the program’s inception 16 years ago. In that time, we’ve recognized change-makers inside and outside of government who have proven what a valuable tool technology can be in making the promise of responsive, customer-focused government real.
The 2017 group includes CIOs, of course, complemented by others in the public sector enabling transformation at all levels of their organizations. Equally important are partners from outside the halls of government, who are bringing investments and solutions to bear that help public-sector leaders better serve their constituencies — whether they’re the agency down the hall, the neighborhood down the block or the public at large. We hope you enjoy the stories of the class of 2017. — Noelle Knell, Editor
