Dave Bowen has a hand in one of the biggest IT projects in federal government: the multi-billion dollar upgrade to the nation's aging air traffic control systems. The FAA's NextGen project aims to transform the country's old analog air traffic system to a satellite-based, highly automated system. NextGen will enable real-time GPS maps of air and ground traffic, employ computerized weather monitoring for route planning, and let planes fly closer together safely, among other benefits. However, with such a long-term project come challenges, and keeping NextGen on budget and schedule is no simple task.

A pilot himself, Bowen spent 25 years in the healthcare industry, most recently as CIO at Blue Shield of California.
