Navy's Wennergren named CIO Council vice chairman

Dave Wennergren today was elected vice chairman of the CIO Council.

Wennergren, the Navy Department's CIO, replaces Dan Matthews, the former Transportation CIO who returned to the private sector in December.

The CIO Council elected Wennergren today at their monthly meeting.

'I am pleased the federal CIO Council elected Dave to this position,' said Clay Johnson, Office of Management and Budget's deputy director for management and chairman of the CIO Council, in a release. 'His leadership and insight will be essential as we continue to deliver results for the American taxpayer by achieving the goals of the President's Management Council.'

Wennergren previously was co-chairman of the CIO Council's Best Practices Committee, has been Navy CIO since 2002 and has been with the department for 25 years.

'I'm excited about this opportunity to serve as vice chairman of the council, and I look forward to continuing to work with the CIO community, OMB and industry to further the strategic use of information technology in delivering improved services to our citizens and the nation,' Wennergren said.
