“I am extremely honored and humbled by this award,” said Lonnie Price. “I’ve leveraged technology to help defend our nation’s global interests and to modernize U.S diplomacy worldwide, a life enriching career that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I’m thankful for this recognition and for the opportunity to continue supporting national security initiatives as an industry leader within a great company like Peraton.”

Since joining the U.S. Foreign Service in 1987 as a security engineer, Price was posted overseas at diplomatic missions in Germany, Russia, Australia, South Africa, Egypt, and Thailand. Throughout his term, Price travelled to 95 countries to keep diplomats safe, embassies secure, and sensitive information private. The pinnacle of his career, as highlighted by this award, is his innovative leadership at the forefront of the digital revolution, which helped transform the State Department’s cyber programs to meet today’s evolving challenges and advanced threats.

Price’s Presidential Rank Award was acknowledged by Secretary Blinken at the annual awards ceremony on Wednesday, December 7, 2022, at the State Department’s headquarters. The ceremony was also broadcast live on BNET with global participation facilitated via Zoom.
