Frank S. Smith III, 2012 Honoree

Senior vice president and CIO
Booz Allen Hamilton
Herndon, Va.
New titles added to your IT organization?
Director of enterprise data and vice president of information services. Over the next year, we'll be hiring people in the areas of cybertechnology, information security, technology management and risk management.
How do you make sure your most talented workers stay put?
I involve my team members throughout the entire life cycle of a project, rather than having them concentrate only on the little piece they may 'own.' At the same time, I challenge them to stretch themselves and develop new skills. Of course, it's important to compensate them very well and help them understand that what they are doing at Booz Allen is building a careerÀ not just carrying out tasks.
