Doll on Deck at NASIRE

When Steve Kolodney announced he was leaving his job as the state of Washington's chief information officer, he also left open his slot as the National Association of State Information Resource Executives' heir apparent.

That position now goes to Otto Doll, chief information of South Dakota.

Kolodney has served as first vice president for NASIRE since last fall. The first vice president traditionally has been the next in line for the group's presidency. After Kolodney, the next in line is NASIRE second vice president Doll, who will become the first vice president on July 1.

"It is likely that Otto Doll will move up and probably become president," said current NASIRE president and Missouri CIO Mike Benzen. Benzen said the tradition of executive committee appointees moving up through the ranks has held more than 90 percent of the time.
