1 min read

Karl Mathias, chief information officer of the U.S. Marshals Service, has been appointed to serve as CIO at the Department of Health and Human Services starting March 14, Federal News Network reported Wednesday.

FNN learned about Mathias’ appointment through an email and noted that he will join HHS nearly 10 months after former full-time CIO Perryn Ashmore stepped down.

The report said George Chambers, who replaced Janet Vogel as acting CIO of the department in January, will return to his permanent role as executive director of the HHS Office of Application and Platform Solutions once Mathias assumes office.

Mathias was appointed CIO at the Marshals Service in January 2015. He supervises approximately 350 government and contractor personnel and information technology modernization efforts at the federal law enforcement agency, according to his LinkedIn account.

He previously worked for the U.S. Air Force in civilian positions such as deputy director of information management at the AF headquarters, a program manager at the Air Force Research Laboratory and deputy head of the Air Force Institute of Technology’s electrical engineering department.
