SBA names Liu CIO

The Small Business Administration late last month tapped 27-year government veteran Christine Liu as its new CIO.

Liu comes to SBA from the State Department, where she served as acting deputy CIO and chief knowledge officer since March 2005.

At State, she helped manage and develop State's joint IT strategic plan with the Agency for International Development and played key roles in State's enterprise architecture activities and its IT investment portfolio.

Prior to that, she served as director of the Systems Integration Office within State's Bureau of Information Resource Management, managing a staff of 90 government employees and 150 contractors.

Liu received her bachelor's degree from American University and her master's in computer systems from the University of Maryland.

Deputy CIO Charles McClam had been serving as acting CIO since September 2005.
