Steven VanRoekel, new US Chief Information Officer

Posted: Updated:

Hey, the good news is that Steven's taken the job held recently by Vivek Kundra, who's done a really good job of making Federal IT more effective and saved a lot of taxpayers dollars.

Steven comes from the FCC, where I saw first hand that he's really good at the same, bringing with him a lot of real-life private industry experience.

There'll be a lot of news on this really soon, but the deal is that I wanted to let people know the good news; I bear witness that Steven's the real deal.
