Gus Taveras plans to move into the private sector after he steps down on Friday as chief technology officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency, FCW reported Tuesday.
Sean Lyngaas writes that Taveras has confirmed his planned departure at the end of this week to FCW.
Taveras became the agency’s CTO in December 2012 and has played a key role in shaping the Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise framework.
ICITE is designed to serve as “the building block for accelerating information sharing, adoption and efficiencies – all original pillars of the [director of national intelligence’s] unified vision,” he wrote on LinkedIn, according to FCW.
He joined the Marine Corps in 1987 as infantryman and later served as technical adviser for the Defense Department‘s chief information officer and Army G2 organization.
