Francisco Salguero has been named the new chief information officer of the Federal Communications Commission, succeeding John Skudlarek, who held the position on an acting basis following the departure of Christine Calvosa in May.
Salguero joins the commission after spending 14 years at the Department of Agriculture where he most recently served as deputy CIO and oversaw the department's $2B information technology portfolio, FCC said Monday.
"The Commission’s aggressive agenda requires an expert and agile information technology team. That team needs a leader with deep expertise in all aspects of IT development, deployment and information security," said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.
Salguero's private sector career includes working with government agencies on law enforcement IT systems as a senior technical project manager at Science Applications International Corp.
