John Sherman

Golden Gov: Executive of the Year

During his time as chief information officer of the Department of Defense, John Sherman has overseen major shifts in the department’s IT portfolio, notably in the move to the cloud, the adoption of a zero-trust security architecture and software modernization. In a recent op-ed for DefenseScoop, Sherman explained the need to get IT modernization “right” for the DOD. “This is a multi-layered challenge that extends from the top of the enterprise all the way down to the post/base/installation level, but it is one that my peers and I are determined to get right,” he said. “It is this user community, both in and out of uniform, who constitute our customer base and why we come to work every day. We have no higher obligation than to get all of this right for them.”
