Jerry Williams to take the HUD CIO helm

I tweeted it last night, but… Government IT veteran Jerry Williams will soon be named as the new CIO at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, insiders are saying. Expect an official announcement as soon as this week.

Williams currently is the deputy CIO at the Interior Department. Previously he served as part of the senior IT management team at the Agriculture Department and the Small Business Administration.

He fills the post that was vacated by Lisa Schlosser, who left HUD in December for the Environmental Protection Agency.
