NPower Texas is honored to welcome Retired Army Lieutenant General Robert S. (Bob) Ferrell as keynote speaker for the inaugural Champions of Veterans gala. He is currently Vice President of Public Sector Strategy at World Wide Technology, working with WWT’s wide-array of industry, federal, defense, state and local partners to deliver business and technology outcomes for next generation capabilities.

Ferrell retired from the United States Army in March 2017 following 38 years of distinguished service.  Bob’s culminating military assignment was in the Pentagon, serving as the U.S. Army’s Chief Information Officer (CIO), overseeing an annual budget that exceeded $11.5 billion. He was responsible for setting strategic direction and objectives for the Army network that serviced over 1.4 million people, and supervised all Army C4 (command, control, communications, and computers) and IT functions.


NPower Texas is proud to present its first Champion of Veterans award to JPMorgan Chase & Co. for their long-standing commitment to veterans and their families as well as their generous support of NPower. Receiving the award will be Mark Elliot, a 28-year Army veteran and head of the JPMorgan Chase Office of Military and Veterans Affairs.
