Gordon Bitko, formerly chief information officer at the FBI, will join the Information Technology Industry Council as senior vice president of policy.
ITI said Monday Bitko will oversee the trade association's public sector portfolio and support the tech industry as chief policy strategist in the government sector with a focus on state and federal procurement regulations, federal IT modernization, implementation of cybersecurity and other tech products and supply chain risk management and security.
“From promoting IT modernization to implementing critically important procurement and supply chain security practices at a key federal government agency, Gordon has had a front row seat navigating these complex policies, which are integral to every technology company,” said Jason Oxman, president and CEO of ITI. “Gordon will continue to build ITI’s public sector expertise and strengthen our policy and advocacy work for this paramount set of issues.”
Bitko has held senior leadership roles at the FBI since 2007. He previously served as a policy analyst and doctoral fellow at the RAND Corp. and started his private sector career at Motorola.
