Tony Encinias, who left Pennsylvania on March 6 after serving as its CIO for seven years, has landed at ViON, an IT enterprise solutions provider. Encinias will serve as vice president of public-sector strategy for the cloud solutions provider.

“ViON’s solutions have resonated well with organizations across the country, and Tony’s years of experience of policy setting and program direction will take our customers to the next level,” Daniel Diltz, a ViON vice president, said in a press release. “Tony has helped government organizations of all types implement IT solutions that balance security, privacy, and transparency, and we couldn’t be happier to have him on our team, where his advice will be valued by colleagues and customers alike.”

One of Encinias’ chief accomplishments during his tenure with state government was moving agencies toward a cloud services model. He noted in an interview with Government Technology that he wanted to see Pennsylvania continue moving toward the cloud, and in his new position as a connector between government and cloud services, he will have the opportunity to help many more agencies with their cloud strategies.
