The White House Office of Administration in the Executive Office of the President is losing its CIO this week.
Brook Colangelo submitted his resignation this week, according to a Dec. 5 report by FedScoop.
Colangelo joined the office in 2009, after having served CIO of the Democratic National Convention Committee. He led a green-technology effort to cut the committee’s carbon footprint, and served as the IT project manager for the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Recovery Program.
Before that role, Colangelo was director of technology for QRS Newmedia Inc, a Washington, D.C.-based communications and consulting company.
Colangelo was recognized in 2011 for a Federal 100 award for his work in ensuring the White House technology infrastructure was resilient enough and allowed 60 percent of White House employees do to mission-critical work during the February 2010 blizzards.
There’s no word yet on who will replace Colangelo. Attempts to contact him and his office were unsuccessful.
