State's CIO moves to IMF
Susan Swart will become the next CIO of the International Monetary Fund. The organization's managing director, Christine Lagarde, announced on June 28 that she has informed the executive board of her intention to pick Swart for the job.
"In a strong field of global candidates, Susan demonstrated expertise with the technology challenges of the kind faced by the Fund and has a distinguished record in delivering high quality IT services in a public sector environment," Lagarde said.
Swart is currently the State department's CIO, and has been with the agency since 1989. She will begin her work at IMF in August, replacing outgoing CIO Jonathan Palmer.
