PBS picks Piatt as CIO

The General Services Administration Public Buildings Service has named William Piatt as chief information officer.

Piatt, who begins his new job effective Feb. 15, previously served as CIO and associate director for management at the Peace Corps, which has a legislated limit on the amount of time employees can work at the agency. "I had a little over a year left and had worked with GSA a lot over the last few years," Piatt said.

Before coming to the federal government, Piatt worked for IBM Corp., Labat-Anderson Inc. and Tecan US Ltd. He will fill a position left vacant since Paul Wohlleben departed in November 1998 for a position at Grant-Thornton LLP.
