Gary Labovich

EVP, Next Generation Modernization Lead

Booz Allen Hamilton

In the past I led our Digital Solutions business. Today I am leading an effort to modernize Booz Allen’s management systems to handle the complexity of our business. But on large-scale technology projects, it’s not just about the technology—it’s about everything else, from user education to change management. Throughout the years, I’ve learned what it takes to build, manage, and implement these efforts.

In the process, we transformed Digital Solutions into one of Booz Allen’s fastest-growing segments, helping the nation’s top agencies modernize their technology. One particular highlight was leading the Affordable Care Act work for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services—and receiving a thank-you phone call from President Barack Obama.

One secret to my success? I have high standards for myself and my team. The best advice I ever got was that in business, there’s no such thing as a draft. Everything you do is a reflection of who you are.
