HUD's former deputy CIO moves to consulting firm

Editor's note: This story was modified after its original publication to add new information.

Chris Niedermayer, a former deputy CIO at the Housing and Urban Development department, has been hired at BRMi as senior knowledge officer.

Niedermayer told FCW his first priority will be to engage in strategic planning for the company as the first step in laying out an actionable plan on how to continue growth in the next three years. He will also work on internal standard operating procedures “in ways that the solutions the company brings to the table can be repeated from customer to customer.”

“Chris is recognized as a thought leader with a solid record of achievement in planning and executing enterprise IT strategy,” said Mike Battle, CEO of BRMi, in a statement. “His experience helping federal agencies use IT to execute their missions enables us to better understand and support our clients and their missions.”

At HUD, Niedermayer presided over IT strategic and capital planning and led the agency's IT transformation initiative through its strategy development and implementation. His full title there was deputy CIO for business and IT modernization. He announced his retirement from government near the end of 2011.

Niedermayer has served as president of AFFIRM, and has been active with other government-industry groups, including the Industry Advisory Council.

“I’ve been very fortunate to have people in the private sector help me in my role as a fed for so many years,” he said. “Now, I’ll have a chance to give back what I’ve learned to this community so it’s that self-satisfaction that I’m returning -- all of the things I’ve learned and all of the value I gained working with these people over many years.”

BRMi, based in Clarksville, Md., is a consulting firm with clients in the Homeland Security, Labor, Commerce and State departments, financial agencies and elsewhere in the federal government.
