HHS announces new CTO

The Health and Human Services Department has tapped Bryan Sivak, Maryland’s chief innovation officer, to serve as its new chief technology officer.

Sivak has been in his current role as chief innovation officer to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley since April 2011. Prior to that, he was the CTO for the District of Columbia.

Sivak replaces Todd Park, who was appointed federal CTO in March 2012.

HHS took to Twitter to announce and welcome its new CTO on June 15. Sivak himself tweeted he was “super excited” to continue work started by Park and the agency itself.

Sivak joined the public sector after founding InQuira, a provider of knowledge management solutions. The company was acquired by Oracle in July 2011.
