GoldenGov: State Executive of the Year
Wood started as Massachusetts’ CIO in 2018, just after the state formed its new Executive Office of Technology Services and Security. Before taking on the CIO role in 2018, Wood served in the commonwealth’s public safety and security office, where he oversaw the modernization of 911 services. The last year has brought plenty of change to Wood’s office, as Massachusetts looks to update its systems and move toward cloud infrastructure. He says that along with those transitions, his team is working to shore up a new mobile work environment, simplify the state’s technology footprint and improve digital service delivery.
