Connecticut hires new CIO

Following a national search for a new state chief information officer, Diane Wallace has been tapped by Connecticut Gov. M. Jodi Rell (R) to fill the job and lead the state's Department of Information Technology.

Wallace comes to the job from the private sector where she has held top-level technology positions, including vice president of IT at CNA Financial Corp. and CIO for Aetna Inc.

She succeeds Rock Regan, who left last year after serving seven years.

The state's IT department has more than 300 employees and an annual budget of about $90 million.
