FCW : February 2013
Trending February 2013 FCW.COM 3 NASA CIO Linda Cureton con rmed on Jan. 29 that she is retiring from gov- ernment, effective April 1. Cureton, a 2011 Federal 100 winner, has held her current position since September 2009. "It had always been in my plan to either retire or change jobs...after the election," Cureton told FCW. "Having been through transitions at the political level before, the timing to leave seemed appealing to me." A career civil servant, Cureton worked at the departments of Energy and Justice, the Of ce of Science and Technology Policy, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explo- sives before joining the staff at NASA, first as CIO of the Goddard Space Flight Center and then as agency CIO. She established the position of chief technology of cer for IT at NASA to focus on innovation, and created a leadership team composed of herself and the CIOs at NASA s 10 centers. The goal, she told FCW s sister publication GCN in October 2012, was to create a "single agency vision for what IT should look like." Her book, "The Leadership Muse," was published in 2011 and explores what makes good leaders. She was also one of the rst fed- eral of cials to blog on a regular basis. "I still feel I have something to contribute to the community," she said. "I plan to write another book.... I have accepted no job offers but will begin in all ear- nest after I nish some tasks at NASA." "Linda has been a real leader across her career in the government IT space, both for her path-breaking work on how a CIO can leverage social media to enhance their effectiveness, as well as her many contributions to the broader government/industry IT com- munity," said Dan Che- nok, executive director of the IBM Center for the Business of Government and former branch chief for information policy and technology at the Office of Management and Budget. "She s the kind of person who is a leader among her peers," said Bob Woods, president of Topside Consulting Group. "She s been active wherever she s gone. Sometimes you know who s in the job at an agency, and sometimes you don t. Wherever Linda was, you knew." "I started my federal career as a GS-2 student assistant cartographer," Cure- ton said, "and I leave as the chief infor- mation of cer of NASA, so it s been a great 34 years." --- Frank Konkel and Troy K.
