Industry Leadership of the Year
A 26-year industry veteran, Jennifer Axt played a pivotal role in Tanium becoming the first security industry solution provider to win a contract enabling a whole-of-state cybersecurity architecture. Axt proved instrumental in securing buy-in from stakeholders, including at the Governor’s level, and closing two whole-of-state deals in Arizona and Florida in FY23. In addition to convening state-level decisionmakers, Axt chairs the recently launched national technology association, GovTAP, bringing together vendors to provide a voice for government and advance SLED initiatives. She also serves as founding mentor for the growing networking organization, GovGals, providing a forum for executive women in government.
