Montana CIO Ron Baldwin Heeds the Call of the Private Sector

Montana’s top technology official and a key architect of the state’s IT consolidation, will be stepping down, officials confirmed to Government Technology.

Chief Information Officer Ron Baldwin, who was appointed to lead the State Information Technology Service Division (SITSD) by Gov. Steve Bullock in January 2013, will be leaving “for a role outside of state government,” Department of Administration Director John Lewis said in a news release.

Baldwin will be taking a position with Deloitte and his last day will be Jan. 19, according to Amber Conger, communications director for Montana’s department of administration.
