EPA seal

Robin Gonzalez will replace Greg Godbout as the Environmental Protection Agency's chief technology officer, according to an internal email message obtained by FCW.

In the April 20 staff notice, EPA CIO Ann Dunkin said she has asked Gonzalez to step into the position after current CTO Greg Godbout departs for the private sector at the end of the month.

Godbout, who is also digital services lead at EPA, is leaving the agency for a position at cBrain, an international provider of digital workflow, knowledge processing, records management and communication software packages.

Dunkin praised Godbout as "the force behind a number of innovative efforts at EPA, including increased collaboration for the cloud-first strategy, developing an agile acquisition program and establishing EPA's Innovation Fellowship."

She added that Gonzalez, a senior EPA official who recently served as Godbout's deputy, will keep the agency on the same innovative path.

Godbout's last day at EPA will be April 29, and according to cBrain, he begins his new job on May 1.
