County Featured in Articles on the Role of Chief Innovation Officers

Cities, counties and states around the country are creating Chief Innovation Officer positions and, in so doing, are finding better ways to use technology. The County’s CIO, Dan Hoffman, was hired in 2012. Since then, the number of CIOs serving jurisdictions around the country has increased.

A recent article in Government Technology entitled “Who’s Making Innovation Official?” features an interactive map of those locations that have added CIOs, and mentions Montgomery County, which was also part of an 2012 article on the emerging roles of CIOs, “Will the Chief Innovation Officer Transform Government?” .
