Federal government services chief executive recognized for outstanding achievements in federal government IT
WASHINGTON, March 28, 2012 — Robin Lineberger, chief executive officer, Deloitte Federal Government Services, has been named a Federal 100 Award winner in the Outstanding Achievement Award in Industry category. Presented annually by Federal Computer Week and the 1105 Government Information Group, this prestigious award recognizes individuals in government and industry who made significant contributions to the federal information technology community in 2012.
“I’m honored to receive the Federal 100 Award,” said Lineberger, “It exemplifies our ongoing commitment to excellence. Through innovation - a hallmark of Deloitte’s culture - we strive to help agencies create the most value from their technology investments in ways that really matter to their mission and constituents.”
Over the past 23 years, this important recognition has been given to government and industry leaders who have played pivotal roles in the federal government IT community. Winners include those who have helped to transform their agency, accelerated their agency’s mission, or affected change, progress and efficiency in determining how the federal government acquires, develops and manages IT. This is the second Federal 100 Award for Lineberger, who was honored previously in 2004.
“Robin’s leadership, passion and commitment to constantly innovating are well known,” said Joe Echevarria, CEO Deloitte LLP. “His work plays a crucial role in helping our federal clients solve their most challenging business problems in an increasingly complex environment. At Deloitte, we are committed to generating business solutions, to protecting the investing public and ensuring quality in everything we do. I congratulate Robin on this well-deserved recognition.”
