15 - Steve Kosiak
2012 Rank: 14

Associate Director, Office of Management and Budget
A career budget analyst, Kosiak is arguably one of the most powerful behind-the-scenes men in American defense. He translates congressional or administration guidance into what DoD can spend. And few people are more intimately familiar with the nation’s defense budget, having spent 18 years as Washington’s top Pentagon spending analyst at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. Kosiak has been directing defense spending priorities and will play a central role as DoD prepares to chop what will likely be hundreds of billions of dollars from planned spending over the coming decade.
