Curious who played a leading role in the federal IT community in 2008? Federal Computer Week has named K. Stuart Shea, president of the Intelligence, Security and Technology Group at Science Applications International Corporation, to its list of leaders in that space.
Shea is among 100 individuals from government, industry, and academia who will be honored Wednesday, March 25 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in McLean, Va. Other honorees include Melissa Hathaway, Vivek Kundra, and Bill Hoover, president and CEO of AMERICAN SYSTEMS.
At SAIC, Shea leads the company’s support to the Intelligence community. Shea also founded and is chairman and CEO of the US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation, a professional association that brings together the many disciplines involved in the geospatial intelligence (GEOINT) sector. Shea is largely credited with making the annual GEOINT Symposium, managed by USGIF, the largest single gathering of intelligence professionals worldwide; it has attracted over 12,000 attendees over the past five years.
For those of you who can’t make the Federal Computer Week event, check out this podcast Shea did this past summer. In it he discusses what it takes to succeed at the executive level.
