STG Announces 2004 Employees of the Year
Congratulations to Beth Lazur, Stacy Lee, Barry Roth, and John Seay

December 23, 2004, Reston , VA – STG announced its 2004 Employees of the Year, at a ceremony during the annual STG Holiday Party, December 10 in Tysons Corner. The awardees are: Beth Lazur, Infrastructure Employee of the Year ; Stacy Lee, Defense Sector Employee of the Year ; Barry Roth, Federal Sector Employee of the Year ; and John Seay, National Security and Foreign Affairs Sector Employee of the Year .

Infrastructure Employee of the Year, Beth Lazur Beth Lazur was a unanimous choice across the entire STG organization for this award. Promoted to Manager, Employee Relations this year, Beth has shown creativity, sensitivity, and dedication in providing our employees with a better work environment. During the course of 2004, Beth clearly defined an organizational capability and collaboratively worked across STG to proactively provide management and employee support. This year, she also expanded the formal training capabilities of STG, created a one-stop shop for employee issues, and lead the effort for the Human Resources requirement in preparing for a successful CMMI Level 3 assessment.

“Beth is a cornerstone of Human Resources—a lways with a smile and a positive attitude, she approaches every issue thrown at her as an opportunity to improve STG. Using intellect, influence and common sense; she created a place in the company where managers and employees alike can go to get advice, support and encouragement,” said Bob Boehm, Vice President of Human Capital.

Defense Sector Employee of the Year, Stacy Lee Stacy Lee is the Functional Area Manager for Windows Server Management at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL). Commuting 81 miles each way, his performance has had a profound impact on ARL, their missions, and on their goals of supporting the warfighter. In fact, Dr Jim Gantt, Director of CISD, selected ARL as the 2004 U.S. Army's Lab of the Year, largely due to Stacy's efforts, in concert with the entire STG team.

Although Stacy focuses on server management, his influence extends throughout the organization, as many of ARL's enterprise applications are Windows based. His accomplishments include the successful re-centralization and standardization of ARL's MS Windows server based technologies, which was critical to ARL's ability to meet the increasing technology-based security deadlines imposed by the ACERT, and provided a resilient, performance-based computing environment to our ARL customer. Each task assigned to Stacy's team was completed on time, to standard, and within budget.

Donna Massimiano, Stacy's direct government point of contact reflects: “Working with Stacy on a day to day basis, I get the full spectrum of his capabilities and these as well as his positive attitude and professionalism carry over into every area of responsibility. Stacy has been a huge part in the total restructure of our Enterprise server environment, which has made it possible for the ALC DOIM to manage a standard enterprise. During this time of migration into Active Directory Stacy has proven to be a major resource to ARL, RDECOM, ALC, and other activities within the ARMY as his knowledge of Active Directory and previous migrations is well beyond those of many involved. He is truly an asset, therefore I fully support this nomination as it has been extremely well deserved.”

Federal Sector Employee of the Year, Barry Roth Barry Roth divides his time directing the efforts of his team members on a multitude of complex programs at both Veterans Affairs and The Food and Drug Administration. Each of his programs is performing well above corporate expectations. As the Director of STG's Veterans Affairs Global Information Technology Support Services (VA GITSS) Program, Barry ensures that technical requirements are met, schedules are maintained, and costs are closely managed and controlled . In addition to excellent programmatic performance, Barry has developed and maintained outstanding relationships with each of his customers. They respect and trust him and the view him as a valued partner supporting them in the accomplishment of their varied sets of goals and objectives.

“Barry's contributions far exceed those associated with the execution of programs alone. As the Corporate leader of the GITSS Program, Barry, through the efforts of his team and as a direct result of his personal leadership and dedication, has managed to generate in excess of $6.0 million in new bookings for the company during the past year. Moreover, he and his team, consisting of STG employees and a plethora of corporate leaders from other companies large and small, are well positioned to dramatically exceed that performance in the years to come,” said Paul Fernandes, Senior Vice President for the Federal Sector.

National Security and Foreign Affairs (NSFA) Sector Employee of the Year, John Seay John Seay was a unanimous selection for the NSFA sector—seldom does an employee have an impact across a 500-person sector—John is a difference maker.

John has served in a diversity of critical roles at STG. Currently, he reports to our Quality Assurance group to provide his expertise in reaching our CMMI Level 3 objectives. When successful assessment is complete, John will return to his role at Vint Hill Farm, where he is the Chief of Quality for Vint Hill Farm engineering programs. The STG engineering team at Vint Hill Farms integrate mobile command and control solutions for the U.S. Army, where quality is a critical and imperative requirement. In January, John will lead a team to accomplish acceptance certification of a major detection system for a critical law enforcement agency.

“John has demonstrated outstanding leadership, his attitude is excellent, and his responsive nature has a positive effect on all that work with him”, said John Barrass, Senior Vice President of the NSFA Sector.
