Donna Roy, Executive Director of the Information Sharing and Services Office at the Department of Homeland Security in the Office of the CIO, will be joining the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as CIO.
According to a news report, Roy announced her departure in an email to her colleagues. Roy joined DHS in 2006 as Director of its Enterprise Data Management Office. Previously, she worked with the U.S. Geological Survey and Transamerica Real State Information Companies.
“I am looking forward to watching this team lead the path to the cloud, drive operational efficiency, stay hyper-focused on delivering faster—better—cheaper for our customers, and ensuring a strong cyber posture by continuing to lead the federal government with identity management capabilities,” she wrote. “Whether you are making the day in the life of a HQ employee better or meeting the needs of our partners at the mission edge, know that your work is and will continue to make a difference.”
“I feel privileged to have worked with so many talented and hardworking federal servants and under the leadership of so many different yet dedicated CIOs over the years,” her email said. “I am proud of the work we have accomplished together in IS2O and throughout my years in OCIO.”
Philip Letowt will take over leadership of the Information Sharing and Services Office in Roy’s absence, says the report.
