CIOs on the go this week

137222027Every week I bring you news of who’s on the move in the world of information technology executives. Here’s a roundup of six men and women who are taking charge of companies’ IT operations and leading them in new directions. And who knows? They might just be looking for someone new to do business with.

  • Barry Barlow joined The SI Organization as Chief Technology Officer. The SI Organization, a contractor to federal defense agencies, was known as Lockheed Martin’s Enterprise Integration Group until 2010, when it was spun off into a separate company. Barlow comes from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, where he worked with The SI Organization on federal contracts. He brings with him experience in cloud computing, big data analysis, geospatial intelligence integration, and geospatial intelligence data standards.
  • Data storage and security maker EMC hired Vic Bhagat as Chief Information Officer. Bhagat spent the last 20 years at GE, where he served as CIO for subsidiaries such as GE Aviation Services, CNBC, and GE India. At EMC he will be responsible for EMC Information Technology, Global Centers of Excellence, Global Business Services and Indirect Procurement organizations. He succeeds CIO Sanjay Mirchandani, who is taking on a new role within the company. (Hoover’s subscribers may access the IT Spotlight Report for EMC, which contains valuable information on the company’s IT operations, strategy, and a list of key contacts.)
  • Alabama-based MailSouth (doing business as Mspark) welcomes Shannon A. Johnston as CIO. Mspark is a direct marketer targeting rural areas. Johnston comes to Mspark from Atlanta-based ShopVisible, an e-commerce platform for retailers.
  • The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond appointed Margaret “Lyn” McDermid as its new Chief Information Officer. McDermid comes to the Fed from Dominion Resources, where she spent the last 20+ years in various IT roles. But she also has experience at the Richmond fed, having served as Chairman of the Board of Directors.
  • Richard D. Nelli joins Streamline Health Solutions as Chief Technology Officer, where he will lead the technical solutions development teams and all technology-related strategy, partnerships, and external relationships. Streamline Health Solutions offers software and services to the health care industry, and Nelli’s experience at two similar companies, CareMedic and Healthvision Solutions, will help him at his new position.
  • Amsterdam-based LBi International promoted Paolo Yuvienco to Global Chief Technology Officer, but he gets to stay in the New York office. LBi International provides digital marketing, Internet consulting, and web services for clients such as Cola-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, and Sony Mobile. Yuvienco, who has been with LBi since 2004, is tasked with developing and leading a unified technology strategy in key international territories.
