Industry Leadership of the Year
Claire Bailey has been a state CTO and an adviser at several companies. Now a regional vice president of public sector at Veracode, Bailey says she keeps coming back to the word “relationships.” During the early phases of the pandemic, Bailey and other public- and private-sector leaders convened “GovGals,” an effort to bring leaders together and build relationships. Bailey says she’s optimistic about the cybersecurity funding states will have at their disposal. “What I see is the evolution of how we develop and modernize our infrastructure and our public services,” she says.
