The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently appointed federal technology veterans Paul Brubaker and Todd Simpson as deputy chief information officer in the account management office and deputy assistant secretary for DevSecOps, respectively. 

Both appointees aim to help the VA Office of Information and Technology build up its reputation as a unified customer experience provider to U.S. military veterans worldwide, the department said Wednesday.

Brubaker previously led initiatives at the departments of Energy, Defense and Transportation in various areas such as cybersecurity, research and strategy.

His industry career has included time as senior director of VMware AirWatch's federal business, CEO of Synteractive and head of the North American public sector team within Cisco Systems' internet business solutions group.

Simpson, who has nearly three decades of federal service, is responsible for electronic health record system interoperability efforts at the VA in his current capacity and providing guidance for OIT's DevSecOps transition initiatives.

He previously worked at the Department of Health and Human Services as chief product officer and at the Food and Drug Administration as CIO.
