Chief Technology Officer Todd Park will step down and move to Silicon Valley by the end of August, but he is not leaving the White House technology team. His new job will focus on recruiting talent, like he did with Mikey Dickerson, who helped fix HealthCare.gov and now heads the U.S. Digital Service.
“I thank Todd for his service as my chief technology officer, and look forward to his continuing to help us deploy the best people and ideas from the tech community in service of the American people,” President Barack Obama said.
The Administration announced Park’s resignation as CTO earlier this week, but has not yet named a replacement for him.
Park and his family have planned to move back to Silicon Valley for a while. The move happens in time for the start of Park’s children’s school year.
“I look forward to doing everything I can in my new role to help bring more and more of the best talent and best ideas from Silicon Valley and across the nation into government,” Park said.
