Having spent 33 years in the Army and helped the U.S. Virgin Islands get back up and running after a hurricane, Angelo Riddick will be New York’s first full CIO since Robert Samson retired more than a year ago.
After more than a year with an interim chief information officer, the state of New York has named a full-time replacement in Angelo “Tony” Riddick, former CIO of the U.S. Virgin Islands, Riddick's LinkedIn profile confirmed today.
As New York state CIO, Riddick is taking over for Jeremy Goldberg, who has been interim state CIO since November 2019 as well as deputy secretary for the Office of Information Technology Services (OITS) and the Office of General Services. New York’s last full CIO was Robert Samson, who retired in August 2019. When Samson left, OITS extolled recent investments in cybersecurity, data consolidation and citizen-facing programs under his leadership.
