With 32 years at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Jerry Johnson may be the federal CIO with the longest tenure in one place, with the last six as the lab's CIO. Located in Washington State and with a staff of 4,900, PNNL is one of 10 national labs operated under the auspices of the DOE. The lab conducts research in science, energy, the environment, and national security, much of it dependent on robust IT systems and networking. Johnson oversees a computing and network infrastructure comprised of supercomputers, sophisticated custom software and collaboration tools.
