McArthur named Navy deputy CIO

The Navy has named Vice Adm. James D. McArthur to be deputy CIO. He'll lead the newly established Enterprise IT Transformation Office as its assistant chief of Naval operations for IT.

McArthur, who also is commander of the Naval Network Warfare Command, assumed both titles of Navy Department deputy CIO and assistant chief of Naval operations in October.

As Navy deputy CIO, McArthur will work with Department of Navy CIO Dave Wennergren; Brig. Gen. John Thomas, deputy CIO for the Marine Corps; and Robert Carey, deputy CIO for Navy policy and integration, to push forward an information management/IT transformation agenda.

The move is part of a Navy restructuring plan.

Prior to McArthur, Rear Adm. Robert Dunham Reilly Jr. filled the job as Navy deputy CIO. Reilly still works in the Navy CIO office as an assistant to the deputy CIO.
