Rick Steele

Ace Info Solutions Inc.

Reston, Va.

Customer: Environmental Protection Agency

How the customer benefited: In an environment in which new software releases were not previously delivered on time and documentation of the architecture was done only at the hardware level, Truslow consistently delivered quarterly maintenance releases on time and created a new, updated architecture for mission-critical systems.

What makes him a leader: When it was time to move the Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Pesticide Program from Crystal Mall 2 in Arlington, Va., to new digs at Potomac Yard in Alexandria, Va., Truslow played a key role in coordinating the move during an eight-month period from October 2005 to June 2006.

The move involved transporting 900 desktop PCs, reconfiguring machines quickly, and developing an automated Lotus Notes upload, and installing routing for all users. To keep everyone and every task on track, Truslow developed a template that allowed all users to see the status of each task with traffic-light color coding of green (on schedule), yellow (task slipping) and red (task late).

After he took the program manager position, Truslow had maintenance releases back on track in less than a year and created an updated architecture for the office's information system.

Truslow not only helped Ace Info build a solid record of past performance with EPA but also grew its work from a single contract with five employees worth $4.5 million to four contracts with more than 20 employees valued at more than $10 million.
