Arizona Chief Information Officer J.R. Sloan will join the National Association of State Chief Information Officers’ executive team as secretary treasurer for the 2024 program year, the association announced Tuesday.
The newest member of the association’s leadership team, Sloan has nearly 30 years experience in the technology industry, beginning his tenure in Arizona in 2013, where he oversees technology innovation, IT governance, policies and standards for the Arizona Strategic Enterprise Technology Office.
Sloan also serves as chairman of the State of Arizona Information Technology Authorization Committee, which approves and monitors high-cost technology projects throughout the state. He helped implement Arizona’s cloud-first policy in 2018, which closed 90 on-premise data centers and generated more than $10.8 million in recurring cost savings, according to NASCIO.
The rest of NASCIO’s executive leadership team includes North Carolina CIO James Weaver, president and Texas CIO Amanda Crawford, vice president.
New Jersey Chief Technology Officer Chris Rein, will also join NASCIO’s executive committee as a director.
