Sonny Hashmi has been named permanent chief information officer at the General Services Administration after four months in the acting CIO role, Fedscoop reported Saturday.
“I’m extremely humbled and honored to have this new responsibility,” Hashmi told Fedscoop in an email.
Hashmi has served as GSA’s chief technology officer since 2011 and filled the CIO role since Casey Coleman stepped down in January to join AT&T‘s government solutions business.
Fedscoop reports that Hashmi has worked to help the agency manage its $600 million IT budget and update enterprise applications across the department.
He also helped lead GSA through its migration into a cloud-based email and collaboration platform, according to Fedscoop.
