Kent Reynolds is a 2014 Rising Star Award Winner

Fifth TCGer to be Recognized

TCG Architect/Developer Kent Reynolds has been selected by Federal Computer Week as a 2014 Rising Star. The Rising Star program recognizes top public and private sector employees who have made an early and substantive mark in the government information technology community. This is the fifth time that a TCG employee has been recognized as a Rising Star. Mr. Reynolds was one of 24 individuals selected for this prestigious honor from a field of nominees drawn from across government, contractors, and non-profits. The award announcement is posted on the Federal Computer Week website, and complete profiles of all awardees will be published in October.

Mr. Reynolds started at TCG in 2002 as a junior developer. He now leads the Budget Formulation and Execution Manager (BFEM) team at the Bureau of Fiscal Service’s Administrative Resource Center (ARC). BFEM is the leading budget formulation and execution shared service. Mr. Reynold’s work has proven that it is possible to build mission-critical systems using flexible technologies that can adapt over time as the government’s needs change.

“We’re good at hiring, and TCG’s commitment to attracting, developing, and keeping exceptional people is well proven. But hiring Kent was a stroke of the best luck,” said TCG President Dan Turner. “His evolution from programmer into leader has been a joy to behold. We’re proud that Kent has won the Rising Star Award and have faith that he won’t now parade into meetings with any more bravado than he already has.”
