Sivak named new CTO at Health and Human Services

Friday - 6/15/2012, 9:32am EDT

The Department of Health and Human Services has named entrepreneur Bryan Sivak as its chief technology officer. He replaces Todd Park, who moved on to the White House as the U.S. CTO.

Sivak has served in similar roles for the District and Maryland, but he's relatively new to public service. Previously he has worked for a tech start-up in Silicon Valley, as founder of the software firm InQuira.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the agency will benefit from Sivak's creativity and fresh ideas.
