FAA names Bowen as new CIO

The Federal Aviation Administration has tapped David Bowen as its new CIO and assistant administrator for information services.

As CIO, Bowen will direct the agency's overall strategic IT planning and $2 billion budget supporting critical administrative, business and operational needs.

He replaces former CIO Daniel Mehan, who retired from the FAA last September.

Before joining FAA, Bowen served as senior vice president and CIO at health care provider Blue Shield of California.

Bowen holds an M.B.A. from Cornell University and received his undergraduate degree from Ursinus College.
