Vermont CIO heads out

Vermont CIO John Quinn plans to step down this month after more than five years leading IT there, including the creation of a centralized tech agency for the Northeastern state. Quinn is taking a job with Government Sourcing Solutions, a consulting firm that advises tech vendors on dealing with state and local governments’ procurement processes. Gov. Phil Scott named Quinn in 2017 as CIO and inaugural secretary of the Agency of Digital Services, which was created to consolidate tech governance across state government. “Every year got a little better from a stability standpoint, funding standpoint, team cohesiveness working together and centralized approach to how we were going to solve enterprise technology,” Quinn said.
