FEB. 21—The Federal Housing Finance Board this month named Hung Phan as its first chief information officer.

As CIO, Phan will direct the Office of Information Management and Technology Support. He will be responsible for agencywide strategic leadership and operational support for all information and systems management, as well as IT investment.

One of his first jobs will be the creation of an IT architecture to support operations at the agency, which oversees the nation's federal home loan banks.

Phan comes to the board from the Education Department where he was director of IT investment and capital planning.

He has more than 17 years of government experience in IT management and computer engineering. Before Education, Phan also worked at the Federal Railroad Administration, the Navy's Bureau of Medicine and Surgery and the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute.
