Export-Import Bank selects new CIO

The Export-Import Bank named Fernanda Young as its CIO. Young, who will take over the post Feb. 9, replaces Patrick O'Hare, who retired in September. She most recently was the CIO of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Young has been the co-chairwoman of the Small and Independent Agency CIO Council and is active in governmentwide review boards and committees for program assessments, enterprise architecture and information security. She also held senior technical managerial positions at the Justice Department and NASA.

She holds bachelor's degrees in mathematics and physics, a master's in computer science, and a doctorate in operations research, all from the University of Grenoble, France.

The Export-Import Bank, an independent federal agency, provides loan guarantees, export credit insurance and direct loans to help finance the sale of U.S. exports, primarily in emerging markets.
