Coleman in, Parker out at FTS CIO

The General Services Administration earlier this month named Casey Coleman as the new CIO of the Federal Technology Service.

Coleman replaces Jimmy Parker, who became the assistant regional administrator for GSA's Region 6 in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska. Parker had been FTS CIO since 2000.

Before moving into the CIO's role, Coleman was deputy associate administrator for GSA's Office of Citizen Services since last July and chief technology officer for the office since July 2002.

In her new position, Coleman will manage the department's IT that supports FTS' mission goals. She will lead the effort to develop and maintain the IT infrastructure that supports the more than $7 billion organization.

Coleman came to GSA after working as a consultant in the private sector for more than 15 years.

In his new role, Parker will oversee the telecommunications services, IT hardware and software acquisition, professional services and integrated IT systems and network projects.

Parker served as the regional CIO for the Army Corps of Engineers in Dallas prior to joining GSA.
