Halvorsen named acting CIO at Pentagon
Navy CIO Terry Halvorsen will replace Teri Takai as Defense Department CIO on an acting basis.
Terry Halvorsen is leaving his post as Navy CIO to be acting CIO for the Defense Department, a Pentagon spokesperson confirmed May 13.
Halvorsen’s first day as DOD CIO will be May 21, said spokesperson Lt. Col. Valerie Henderson. The decision to appoint Halverson interim Pentagon CIO was handed down May 12 in an internal memo from Deputy Secretary Robert Work.
There is no indication that Halvorsen’s tenures as Navy and DOD CIO will overlap, the spokesperson said, adding that there is no timetable for naming a permanent CIO at the Pentagon.
Halvorsen, a 2010 Federal 100 winner, takes over for Teri Takai, who left the department May 2.
