NIST CIO Mehuron will retire

William O. Mehuron, CIO of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and director of its IT Laboratory, will retire April 3. ITL deputy director Susan Zevin will serve as acting director of the Commerce Department laboratory until a successor is appointed, a NIST official said.

The laboratory develops computer security standards and guidelines for the federal government and conducts research to make systems more usable, scalable, and easier to measure and interoperate.

Mehuron had worked as director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Systems Acquisition Office from 1995 to 1997, and then as acting deputy undersecretary of NOAA until 1998.

Earlier, Mehuron worked as director of research and engineering at the National Security Agency. He held senior management positions in private-sector IT organizations before entering the government.
