FBI Chief Information Officer Chad Fulgham will leave the agency and return to the private sector, the bureau announced Tuesday.
The FBI said the move is effective April 13.
He joined the FBI more than three years ago and the bureau credits him with reorganizing the bureau’s information technology branch.
The bureau said he initiated the bureau’s server virtualization efforts, which aimed to support the government’s collaboration and communication tools.
He also led several of the bureau’s application development activities and led the development of Sentinel, an electronic case management system.
The bureau expects to launch the paperless system this summer.
He said the bureau has trained hundreds of special agents and employees to use the new system and that the software coding and hardware are in place.
Information Week selected Fulgham for a “500 Innovators” award in 2010 for the bureau’s next generation network and next generation workspace initiatives.
