A former White House IT official – and 2011 Federal 100 winner – has a new gig in the private sector.

Brook Colangelo, who served as CIO at the Executive Office of the President from 2009 through 2012, is joining Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to lead IT strategy and technology infrastructure development.

Colangelo will be based in the Boston-located global headquarters of the publishing house. His responsibilities will include core IT operations and infrastructure services across HMH's global office network.

Colangeo resigned from the White House in December. Before that position, he held several senior IT leadership roles, including within the Democratic National Convention Committee, The American Red Cross' Hurricane Recovery Program and QRS Newmedia.

In addition to being recognized for his IT leadership as a Fed 100 winner, Colangelo made Computerworld’s 2012 Premier 100 IT Leaders and InformationWeek's The Government CIO 50 lists.
