The Federal Communications Commission has announced Robert Naylor, who formerly helmed the Small Business Administration’s IT efforts, will take over as the commission’s chief information officer.

In his role as CIO, Naylor is tasked with initiating a “tech-forward” strategy aimed at cutting costs and shifting toward cloud-based solutions.

“This hire equips the FCC to lead by example in the federal technology space,” said FCC Managing Director Steven VanRoekel. “Robert brings the right vision and leadership to modernize the agency’s data and IT holdings and keep this agency moving toward the cloud.”

Naylor’s arrival comes after a high-profile website redesign of FCC.gov, which launched in a secure cloud environment.

Naylor previously served as the Small Business Administration’s CIO, and he also served on two committees within the Federal Executive CIO Council.

Naylor is no stranger to the private sector. In 1999, he launched an international professional services small business, servicing the human capital management industry.

    Congraduations Bob, I know that you will do a great job. By the way look at the church’s new web site created by June. http:www.gbgm-umc.org/fcumc. The movie was taken by her 7 year old son Sean.
    Good luck
