David Garcia has been named the new CIO at the Office of Personnel Management, the agency confirmed to FedScoop.

Garcia steps into the role just less than a month since Dave DeVries retired from federal service, moving to Michigan as the state’s CIO.

Garcia’s first day was Monday.

Prior, he served as secretary of the state of Maryland’s Department of IT. He stepped away from his time with Maryland in January. He is also the founder of Chantilly, Virginia-based IT contractor NMR Consulting, for which he still serves as chairman of the board.

Federal News Radio first reported Garcia’s hire.
