Barry West, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s chief information officer, has been put on administrative leave.
Multiple industry sources confirm West left FDIC recently. Sources were unclear why West was put on administrative leave or when he exactly left.
An FDIC spokeswoman would only confirm that West remains an employee of FDIC and is out of the office for personal reasons. The spokeswoman cited privacy laws as the reason for not discussing any other details about his whereabouts.
Sources also confirmed that West will not take on a second year as the President of the Association for Federal Information Resource Management (AFFIRM). West alerted the organization in late May that he would leave his post June 17.
