Joe McIntosh has been named the new state chief information officer in Oklahoma.

McIntosh joined the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES) in 2020 as the senior director of Application and Data Services. Earlier this month, he was elevated to CIO effective July 3, according to an OMES spokesperson.

He replaces Jerry Moore, who had served in the position since 2020. Moore resigned as state chief information officer and has assumed a new role within OMES as the deputy director and chief transformation officer.

“In this new role, he will focus on maturing the core services OMES provides to our customers across all divisions, as well as continue to be the executive leader of Information Services, Central Purchasing, Finance, Human Resources and Human Capital Management, Capital Assets Management and Risk, Assessment and Compliance,” said Caden Cleveland, director of legislative and public affairs at OMES, in an email. 

“This is a change that has been many months in the making and I expect a smooth transition for all,” he added.

McIntosh brings more than two decades of IT experience. He previously served in an IT position with the Sonic Drive-In fast-food brand, where he focused on creating a more data-driven organization, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Oklahoma’s consolidated IT structure serves 188 agencies, boards and commissions with some 32,000 employees.
