Sonny A. Hashmi, 2014 Honoree

Deputy CIO
General Services Administration
A recent example of your leadership style:
I canceled all weekly staff meetings within my organization. Everyone posts their updates on the GSA internal social media groups. I check and ask/answer questions constantly. It has freed up time that is better spent solving business problems.
Skills you'll hire for this year:
Agile project managers, modern cloud/open-source developers, business process analysts, change management analysts and customer liaisons.
How are you turning your IT department into a services organization?
Developing an open, transparent service catalog and instilling a sense of competition within the organization.
A recent great deal from a vendor:
By negotiating with and aggregating current and projected license volume across the enterprise, I was able to secure a multiyear deal that led to the largest rate discount that Salesforce has ever offered an enterprise customer.
