People on the Move

Melissa Wojciak

Tim Hurr has been named the Treasury Department's chief information security officer, a new position.

Before coming to Treasury last year, Hurr spent 14 years at AT&T Corp.'s business services and labs division in senior management and technical positions.

Melissa Wojciak, a long-time House Government Reform Committee staff member, is the new committee staff director, replacing Peter Sirh, who has joined the Washington law firm of Patton Boggs LLP.

Wojciak, who was deputy staff director for chairman Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.), also served as Davis' staff director when he headed the Technology and Procurement Policy Subcommittee in 2001 and 2002.

David Marin will assume the deputy chief of staff role as well as continue as the committee's communications director.

Emory Miller, the General Services Administration's former director of professional development, will join Robbins-Gioia LLC of Alexandria, Va., next month as senior vice president for corporate development.

Miller retired from GSA early last month after nearly four decades in government.

Gary Winters, who had been Miller's deputy, is the interim director of professional development at GSA.

Greg Jackson has been named Ohio's first CIO. Gov. Bob Taft recently appointed Jackson, who since January 2000 has been assistant director of Ohio's Administrative Services Department, where he oversaw the Information Technology Governance and Information Technology Service Delivery divisions.

President Bush has nominated John J. Young Jr., a Navy research and acquisition official, to serve as deputy undersecretary of Defense for acquisition and technology.

Young currently is the Navy's assistant secretary for research, development and acquisition. If confirmed by the Senate, he would take the job previously held by Edward C. 'Pete' Aldridge Jr. Aldridge retired in May after more than 18 years of Defense and civilian work.

Lemuel C. Stewart last month was named CIO of Virginia, completing a four-month search.

Stewart will handle the day-to-day operations of the state's IT systems and will answer to the IT Investment Board. The state Legislature created the board in July to carry out Gov. Mark Warner's IT reform agenda. Warner named George Newstrom, then the state CIO, to lead the board, leaving the CIO job vacant.
