WA appoints new government CIO
Greg Italiano has been appointed to the role following a formal selection process. He will take up the role on 17 December.
Italiano was previously Executive Director Corporate Services for the state's Department of Justice, where he was overseeing the agency's digital transformation.
In his new role, Italiano will lead the Department of Premier and Cabinet's Office of Digital Government and will assume responsibility for the state's digital reform agenda.
This agenda is focused on areas including improving delivery of online services, developing policies and strategies governing data protection and sharing, and building up the public sector's data analytics capabilities in order to develop better targeted services and policies.
Italiano will also lead work supporting the implementation of IT procurement forms across the public sector and investigating strategies to reduce the digital divide.
"Mr Italiano has a proven track record as a collaborative leader, and demonstrated experience bringing strategy, technology and efficiency together," WA Innovation and ICT Minister Dave Kelly said.
"The McGowan Government is committed to efficiently and securely delivering world-class services, and a public sector enabled by technology is fundamental to that vision. I look forward to working with Mr Italiano in bringing leadership to this important area of public sector reform."
