The appointments came a week after the White House announced that Todd Park, who had served as U.S. CTO since March 2012, was tak- ing on a new role recruiting talented tech professionals in Silicon Valley to work for the government. Although she was vice president of business development at Google for nine years, Smith might be best known for her most recent role as vice presi- dent of Google X, the company s secre- tive innovation lab. Macgillivray will focus mainly on Internet policy, intellectual property, and the intersection of big data, tech- nology and privacy. He served as gen- eral counsel and head of public policy at Twitter from 2009 to 2013. U.S. Deputy CIO Mikey Dickerson is moving quickly to build the U.S. Digi- tal Service team --- and tapping some familiar federal IT talent in the process. In August, Dickerson announced that the Of ce of Science and Tech- nology Policy s Erie Meyer and Viv- ian Graubard had joined USDS, along with White House Senior Technology Adviser Haley Van Dyck. Dickerson also announced two recruits from the private sector: Fuse Corps CEO Jennifer Anastasoff and Google software engineer Brian Le er. And he praised the Of ce of Management and Budget s existing e-government team, saying those individuals "expertise and knowledge about IT delivery within government [have] really helped us hit the ground running." David McClure, former associate administrator of the General Services Administration s Of ce of Citizen Ser- vices and Innovative Technologies, is taking his 25 years of federal IT expe- rience to the private sector as chief strategist at Veris Group. In his new role, McClure will work with state and federal agencies on their cloud and modernization initiatives, according to a company statement. Mike Parker, the Treasury Depart- ment s acting CIO, has retired. He joined the agency in 2011 as deputy CIO and assumed the acting CIO role in June when Robyn East left after three years at the agency. Previously, Parker was associ- ate CIO for IT strategy and planning at the IRS, one of several executive positions he held during his 22 years at the agency. --- FCW staff FCW Insider: People on the move
