Rob Foster is leaving his role as Navy CIO, FedScoop has learned.
Foster’s last day is Aug. 19, before joining the National Credit Union Administration as deputy CIO, “where he will be responsible for delivery of IT services,” a Navy official told FedScoop in an email.
The Department of the Navy has not selected Foster’s replacement yet, the official said. Kelly Fletcher serves as principal deputy CIO.
Foster, appointed Navy CIO in June 2015, also spent time as deputy CIO at the Department of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement after retiring from active duty in the Navy in 2007.
Foster received a FedScoop 50 award in 2015.
Federal News Radio first reported Foster’s departure.
