Tech subcommittee director leaves
Robert Dix, staff director for the House Government Reform Subcommittee on Technology, Information Policy, Intergovernmental Relations and the Census, will leave Capitol Hill for a job in the private sector after Jan. 1, said David Marin, press secretary for the Government Reform Committee.
"This was a difficult decision," said Dix, who will join Citadel Security Software Inc. of Dallas as vice president for government affairs and corporate development.
Under Dix's direction, the subcommittee held 39 hearings over two years, mostly on IT issues such as enterprise architecture, e-government and cybersecurity.
In his new position, Dix said, he will work with federal, state and local governments and the private sector on cybersecurity issues.
