David Shive, chief information officer of the General Services Administration over the past five years, has been named vice chair of the Federal CIO Council.
He succeeds Joe Klimavicz, who retired from the federal government in February, the council said Wednesday.
In his new position, Shive will provide direction for council activities and align its priorities with the President’s Management Agenda.
He brings five years of council work to the role, with experience leading its services, strategy and infrastructure committee as co-chair.
Shive joined GSA in November 2012 and directed its enterprise infrastructure office before he was promoted to the CIO role. He served as CIO of Washington, D.C., prior to joining federal service.
