Salguero Named FCC’s CIO
Monday, December 09, 2019 | Comments

The FCC appointed Francisco Salguero as chief information officer (CIO).

Salguero previously worked at the U.S. Department of Agriculture for 14 years, most recently as deputy CIO, where, among other things, he provided strategic oversight of the department’s $2 billion IT portfolio. Salguero started his career in the private sector within the technology and telecommunications industry, working for both start-up and large organizations. Later, as a senior technical project manager at Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), he worked with state and local government on law enforcement IT systems.

“I am delighted that Mr. Salguero has agreed to serve as our CIO,” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. “The commission’s aggressive agenda requires an expert and agile information technology team. That team needs a leader with deep expertise in all aspects of IT development, deployment and information security. This is especially important because Congress last year enhanced the responsibilities of the FCC’s CIO — responsibilities the FCC recently codified in our rules. During his tenure at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Mr. Salguero demonstrated the ability to deliver on the agency’s complex information technology requirements. I look forward to him applying that same technical expertise to our operations at the commission.”

Chairman Pai also thanked Acting CIO John Skudlarek for leading the FCC’s IT team during the transition.
