Lauren Knausenberger

Industry Leadership

Lauren Knausenberger led a storied career in the Department of the Air Force, culminating in a nearly three-year stint as the air service’s chief information officer. After leaving that role and taking some time to be with her family, Knausenberger last September joined SAIC as its chief innovation officer and the head of the organization’s corporate strategy. As chief innovation officer, Knausenberger leads innovation strategy across the company and is responsible for making sure “SAIC’s transformation capabilities are mission-relevant, agile and aligned with the needs of our customers.” One such example of that is SAIC’s partnership with Amazon to deliver mission-ready Zero Trust Edge capabilities, which Knausenberger said: “provides warfighters with a critical capability to extend their enterprise OCONUS, with the ability to run disconnected ops and rapidly adopt technologies and capabilities needed for mission success.”
