Kristen Baldwin


CIO, Federal Aviation Administration

Federal Aviation Administration CIO Kristen Baldwin moved from the FAA’s parent department, the Department of Transportation, to the top IT position of the FAA in February 2020, just before the pandemic hit. She was the deputy CIO of DOT and brought an appreciation of how the larger department and FAA could collaborate. The FAA oversees air traffic in the U.S., an industry hit hard by the pandemic as fewer people traveled.
