Deloitte Is In Your State Office, Poaching Your CIO

Colorado Chief Information Officer Kristin Russell is leaving Gov. John Hickenlooper’s administration for a leadership role in a new government cloud computing practice of Deloitte Consulting LLP. Russell will be stepping down May 9 after just over three years as CIO and secretary of technology for the state government. The state has already begun the search to replace Russell for the cabinet-level position.

Russell said she was excited by the opportunity to work with Deloitte’s expanding technology operation in Denver, and that her experience as state CIO showed her the existing opportunities to bring better technologies to the public sector.

“We really need more enterprise cloud systems that can be built specifically for government so we can be more efficient and elegant in the way we provide services,” Russell said. “At Deloitte, they see public sector and cloud being a green field.” [Denver Business Journal]
