Mark Schwartz, chief information officer of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, will step down from his role seven years after he joined the agency, Federal News Radio reported Friday.
Schwartz is currently negotiating his last day at USCIS and recently joined the board of directors at cloud-hosted online infrastructure services provider DigitalTown, according to the station.
As USCIS CIO, he helped drive the government’s adoption of agile or DevOps methodologies for software and systems development projects, the report stated.
Schwartz previously held a similar position at Intrax Cultural Exchange where he oversaw efforts to replace paper-based processes in the field and abroad with electronic processes.
He also worked as CEO of software and online services provider Auctiva Corp.; consultant at management consulting firm Mitchell Madison Group; and software development director of ClientXChange.
