Last week, James Collins was confirmed by the state senate to serve as Chief Information Officer of the Department of Technology and Information.
He is replacing Jim Sills, who is now the president and CEO of Mechanics and Farmers Bank. He had served as DTI’s CIO since 2009.
“Today’s unanimous vote by the Senate affirms the skills and talents James Collins possesses to lead the Department of Technology and Information as its Chief Information Officer,” Gov. Jack Markell said in a press release. “He is not only qualified to serve in this position from his years and depth of experience in the fields of IT and data and information systems security, but also because of his commitment to ensure that Delawareans continue to receive the highest standard of service throughout the state.”
