Robert Brese will leave his post at the Energy Department as chief information officer on Sept. 5, Federal News Radio reported Monday.
Jason Miller writes that Brese plans to work in the private sector after more than three decades of combined federal and military service.
Brese was the agency’s deputy CIO prior to being appointed to his current position and also held the roles of deputy CIO and director at the National Nuclear Security Administration.
He has managed information technology modernization at the DOE as well as cybersecurity, energy efficiency and open data initiatives during his seven-year career there.
Brese co-sponsors the American Energy Data Challenge with the goal of giving the public access to application programming interface sources for new technology development.
The station reports that deputy DOE CIO Dan Adcock will succeed Brese on an interim basis.
