Hawaii Gov. David Ige announced on April 8 his appointment of Todd Nacapuy as the state’s new CIO. Once the appointment is confirmed by the state, Nacapuy will lead the Office of Information Management and Technology. Nacapuy would take the place of Keone Kali, who replaced Sonny Bhagowalia in an acting capacity last year.

Nacapuy is now the senior technical account manager for premier commercial services in the state, and before that served as a senior infrastructure specialist for EDS, where he monitored and optimized Web services for the Navy and Marine Corps network in the Pacific.
 
“Todd has the right mix of technical and business skills to upgrade the state’s technology infrastructure,” Ige said in a press release. “Under his leadership, the office will continue to identify modernization projects that are in process across the various state agencies. He will immediately focus on a few that have broad or significant impact. My commitment to an enhanced IT system is based in my strong desire to improve public access to government services that will ultimately result in improved public trust in state governance.”
