Beth Gorko

Rick Steele

General Dynamics Corp.

Falls Church, Va.

Customer: Coast Guard

How the customer benefited: Gorko is General Dynamics Information Technology's project manager for the Vessel Tracking Project, a four-year, $31 million Coast Guard and Navy research and development effort. The project will improve intelligence-sharing capabilities to enhance maritime domain awareness and port security.

What makes her a leader: Although the contract is managed by the Coast Guard Office of Research, Development and Technology Management, the project is a joint effort that involves other Coast Guard offices in addition to parts of the Navy and the Defense Information Systems Agency. Communication and coordination among these groups is critical to the project's success. Gorko established a project management office. She also plans and manages all Coast Guard-related activities for the project. She established relationships with the other stakeholders and created a system to schedule the resources the vessel-tracking project needs to reach its objectives.
