Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted Government IT solutions provider, today announced that Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president, has been selected as one of the 2012 Federal 100 Award winners. Sponsored by Federal Computer Week magazine, the annual program showcases 100 Government and industry leaders who have played pivotal roles in affecting change, progress and efficiency in determining how the Federal Government acquires, develops and manages IT.
The Federal 100 awards program is a testament to the power of the individual, according to John Monroe, FCW editor. Teamwork matters. Funding matters. Technology matters. But in the end, it’s often an individual who makes the difference.
Abod was selected to receive the honor by an independent panel of industry and government judges in recognition of his development of an innovative program that has directly benefited Government efforts to accelerate technology innovation at defense and intelligence agencies. Specifically, Abod has developed an outreach program that provides much-needed mentorship and business support to emerging technology start-ups entering the public sector market.
“Carahsoft has been committed to supporting the advancement of innovation and technologies vital to the defense and intelligence sectors and missions of our country since our founding, and I am certainly honored to receive this award recognizing our efforts in this area,” said Abod. “By helping emerging technology companies bring their cutting-edge technologies to the government market, we are able to deliver capabilities that vital to the national security of our country.”
The 2012 Federal 100 included 23 individuals from industry, and 77 from Government. Winners were honored at a black-tie gala on March 28.
