First White House Chief Technology Officer To Step Down

January 27, 2012

White House Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra has resigned, the White House said Friday.

"As the federal government's first Chief Technology Officer, Aneesh Chopra did groundbreaking work to bring our government into the 21st century," President Obama said in a statement. He credited Chopra with finding innovative ways to use technology to engage Americans.

The statement did not say why Chopra is leaving or what his plans are.

Chopra oversees the administration's technology agenda, from cybersecurity and job creation to health IT and broadband. He also helped author the administration's position on recent anti-piracy legislation. As the economy continued to suffer, Chopra focused on many innovation issues.

Chopra came to the White House in 2009 after three years as secretary of technology for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
