NRC names David Nelson as CIO

David Nelson

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has appointed David Nelson as its CIO.

Nelson is a federal IT veteran, having most recently worked as CIO and director of the Office of Enterprise Information at the Department of Health and Human Services' Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

"David's lengthy experience with the government's use of information technology will help the NRC keep pace with today's interconnected world," said Victor McCree, NRC's executive director for operations, in the statement.

Nelson’s start date has yet to be finalized, according to the agency.

CMS officials chose him to help rescue the ailing HealthCare.gov site and to oversee the technology backbone that supports services such as Medicare claims processing.

He has held several positions at CMS since joining the agency in 2004, including director of the Office of Information Services, director of the Office of Enterprise Management, and director of the Data Analytics and Control Group at the Center for Program Integrity.

Before joining CMS, Nelson worked in the private sector, where he helped establish two broadband development companies to support underserved U.S. markets.
