NIC Inc., one of the biggest providers of digital government services in the United States, has hired seasoned tech strategist Brian Anderson to be its new chief technology officer.
According to a news release on Monday, Anderson will be a member of NIC’s senior leadership team and report to CEO Harry Herington. The release credited Anderson with having successfully led a suite of enterprise software, having considerable experience with mergers and acquisitions and holding several patents.

In the past five years, he has been the chief technology officer at Lexmark International, where he developed product strategy and led the company’s research and development initiatives; a board member at TradeTec; and the CEO and co-founder of the startup Applogie, a platform for helping organizations manage their SaaS subscriptions.
