The FBI has a new chief information officer.

Bureau director Robert Mueller today announced Chad Fulgham as the new CIO, taking over for Zal Azmi, who left the FBI in October.

Azmi now works for CACI.

Mueller says in a release that Fulgham's experience in working with multi-national corporations and cutting edge technology fit well wit the bureau's IT needs.

Fulgham comes to the FBI from Lehman Brothers, where he ran the IT division. In the past, he also worked at IBM, JP Morgan Chase and Arthur Andersen.

He spent five years in the Navy where he worked on information security, network management and communications under the commander of the Naval Surface Force for the U.S. Atlantic Fleet.
