Stuart Wagner

Federal Leadership

Fresh off of winning a DefenseScoop 50 award, Stuart Wagner was voted an honoree on this year’s FedScoop 50 awards list as well. As chief digital transformation officer at the Department of the Air Force, Stuart Wagner pushes innovation and digital application development across the Air Force and Space Force. One of the more notable efforts Wagner leads is the Air Force’s BRAVO hackathon series to address the Department of the Air Force’s challenges with data and create operational prototypes as solutions. Ahead of the third event earlier this year, he told DefenseScoop they want to scale the event to include the entire Pentagon and intelligence community. “The cool part about these events is we really don’t know what’s going to get developed,” Wagner said on the DefenseScoop Podcast. “We bring the data, we bring the environment and we let people run wild with their imagination.”
