Anita Breckenridge, President Obama’s Deputy Chief of Staff for Operation and the author of the announcement of the official White House blog, noted that the President created the U.S. Digital Service (USDS) last year to improve the way the government uses technology to serve the American People.
“In our continued efforts to serve our citizens better, we’re bringing in top tech leaders to support our teams across the federal government. Today, I’m pleased to welcome David Recordon as the Director of White House Information Technology,” the President said in a statement.
Furthermore, President Obama said that Recordon’s substantial experience in the private sector seeing to the deployment of the latest collaborative and communication technologies among other things “will be a great asset to our work on behalf of the American people.”
The former Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) engineer will be tasked to continue the Obama administration’s Smarter IT Delivery efforts, Breckenridge wrote.
