The Most Significant IT Executive Moves Of 2012 (So Far)


Vivek Kundra/Aneesh Chopra

Vivek Kundra (left) and Aneesh Chopra both came into Obama administration roles -- respectively the country's first federal CIO and federal CTO -- with much fanfare. But as of this spring, both have gone on to other things: Kundra, who left the CIO post last summer, is now an executive vice president at Salesforce.com, and Chopra was confirmed to be leaving in January. Todd Park, most recently CTO for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), was confirmed as Chopra's successor in March, while Kundra was replaced in August 2011 by former Microsoft executive Steven VanRoekel.
