Top 25 Doers,
Dreamers & Drivers
Government Technology's Top 25 honors innovators in the public sector.
Every year, we seek 25 individuals (and sometimes a few teams) who cut through the public sector’s legendary barriers to innovation with transformative ideas. We call them our Top 25 Doers, Dreamers and Drivers — and we believe they set the standard for using technology to make government more effective and responsive. As usual, the composition of this year’s Top 25 is impressive and wide-ranging. It includes elected leaders who drove new technology investment and advanced the use of analytics for decision-making; local officials who used open data to strengthen government transparency and solve problems; state CIOs who shepherded complex consolidation initiatives and sophisticated cloud deployments; emergency management professionals who made communities safer; and entrepreneurs who led and financed innovative gov-tech startups. Collectively their skill and determination helped improve quality of life and community prosperity nationwide. We’re proud to introduce our 2015 Top 25 Doers, Dreamers and Drivers.
