North Carolina Swears In New CIO

Bringing with him a long history of public service, Eric Boyette will look to continue pushing innovation for the state.

Eric Boyette, North Carolina’s new chief information officer, has officially stepped into his role after a June 19 swearing in ceremony.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper appointed Boyette as the new head of the state’s IT department in early April after previous CIO Keith Warner departed in December.

Boyette will seek to follow in the footsteps of state leaders who have pushed technology forward in the state, including the launch of a new Innovation Center that “allows state employees to test different technologies before adopting them for wider use,” StateTech reported.
