Susan Swart, the State Department’s chief information officer, will leave the department to become the International Monetary Fund’s CIO.

The IMF said her appointment will take effect in August and she succeeds Jonathan Palment, the IMF’s first CIO, as he returns to public service in Australia.

Swart will also serve as associate director of technology and general services department, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in the release.

Lagarde added Swart’s experience in delivering information technology within the public sector will help address the IMF’s technological challenges.

As CIO, Swart will be responsible for applying technology into the IMF’s mission and delivering IT services and infrastructure.

Swart has served in the State Department since 1989 and as CIO since 2008.
