Smithsonian CIO exits

The Smithsonian Institution will lose its CIO at the end of this month when Dennis Shaw steps down.

Shaw will launch his own consulting firm, DRS Consulting, after he leaves the agency Sept. 1.

During his tenure, Shaw played an integral role as the agency overhauled and modernized its financial management, human resources and telecommunications systems.

He also helped establish a central help desk and consolidated the agency's LANs and e-mail systems.

Ann Speyer, current chief technology officer, will serve as acting CIO, and the agency will begin the process of selecting a new CIO in the near future, officials said.
