Rob St. John, Washington’s acting chief information officer and director of the state’s Consolidated Technology Services, has announced his departure, effective June 30, 2018. St. John took the helm of acting chief information officer in October 2017 after Michael Cockrill stepped down.

St. John’s retirement announcement will soon end his 33-year career in government.

Prior to his current roles, St. John served as the chief information officer for Washington’s Department of Social and Health Services from 2007 to 2012.

An interim replacement has not been named, but a nationwide search has been underway since October to find someone to permanently fill the position.
