Industry leader tapped as new federal CIO

VMware chief information officer Tony Scott has been tapped by the White House to be U.S. chief CIO and administrator of the Office of EGovernment, succeeding Steve VanRoekel, FCW reports.

Scott joined VMware in August 2013 after leaving his CIO position at Microsoft. Before Microsoft, he worked at Walt Disney Co as CIO and at General Motors as chief technology officer.

Lisa Schlosser has been serving as deputy CIO since VanRoekel stepped down in 2014, FCW said.
