Georgia CIO Calvin Rhodes stepped down

After a decade of service, Georgia CIO Calvin Rhodes stepped down over the summer. He was lauded by his counterparts as “the consummate professional.”

There were other big moves, too. 

Washington CIO Jim Weaver in February announced he’d become North Carolina’s top IT official, his third state CIO role including his stretch in Pennsylvania.

Ohio CIO Ervan Rodgers took a role at the shoe retailer Designer Brands, North Carolina Chief Risk Officer Maria Thompson landed at Amazon Web Services and Nevada CIO Alan Cunningham stepped down after his role was “altered dramatically.”


West Virginia CIO Joshua Spence, meanwhile, saw his role expand.
