Pesachowitz leaves EPA

Pesachowitz leaves EPA

Alvin Pesachowitz, the Environmental Protection Agency's former chief information officer, will take a job with Grant Thornton LLP.

Pesachowitz, EPA's first CIO, stepped down from the job in April in preparation for a move to the private sector [GCN, April 3, Page 58]. But he had continued working at EPA during the transition to a new systems structure. Pesachowitz left the agency last week.

Edwin A. Levine, a former systems official for the state of Florida, is EPA's new CIO.

Pesachowitz this month will become director of information technology consulting for Grant Thornton.

The move reunites Pesachowitz with Paul Wohlleben, EPA's former deputy CIO who is now a partner with the Vienna, Va., consulting company.
