Philadelphia looking for a new CIO
One of the first jobs for Philadelphia’s new mayor, Jim Kenney, will be finding a new chief innovation officer following the resignation of Adel Ebeid late last year.
Ebeid was the city's first CIO, and before that served as the CIO/CTO for the state of New Jersey. Under his management, Philadelphia’s Office of Innovation and Technology expanded services provided to city agencies and citizens, embarked upon a citywide technology modernization effort to secure and stabilize the city’s technology portfolio and expanded on the success of open data and geospatial initiatives.
“I feel extremely proud of what the team has been able to accomplish over the last four years,” Ebeid said before he left. “From day one, we focused on building an organization that can sustain change in the future, and I’m proud to leave behind a team who will continue to drive the technology modernization agenda.”
Ebeid will start this new position as the president for innovation and technology of sustainability company Green Diamond Solutions.
