Jeremy M. Goldberg will be assuming the role of New York's acting CIO, an official with the Office of Information Technology Services (ITS) confirmed Wednesday.

Goldberg most recently served as the deputy secretary to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for General Government, Technology and Innovation and the state's budget office.

He will be stepping into the position most recently filled by Joseph J. Rabito, who was named the interim director of ITS following the retirement Robert Samson in August, ITS spokeswoman Alicia Biggs confirmed in an email.

In an August email to ITS staff, Rabito told employees that the agency would be working closely with Goldberg and the state’s budget office to successfully complete projects. At that time, Rabito charged staff with adopting a forward-thinking mindset to help close the gap between emerging technology used in the private sector and antiquated legacy systems within government services.

Before coming on board with the Cuomo administration in May, Goldberg led the NYCx program as the deputy chief technology officer and managing director. NYCx is an annual competition for companies to showcase tech-based solutions to common city challenges, such as transportation and Internet connectivity.

Goldberg has worked in the public sector for the past eight years, breaking into civil service with the city of San Jose.
