Allan Frank

Chief Information Officer

Allan Frank was formerly Chief Technology Officer of the City of Philadelphia’s Division of Technology. His final day was Feb. 1, 2011. Read our report on his legacy here.

Frank first joined city government in July 2008 as Mayor Nutter’s Chief Information Officer. A year later, in July 2009, Frank was officially made the city’s first Chief Technology Officer, consolidating IT from 33 city agencies. As a member of Nutter’s mayoral cabinet, Frank is in charge of technology related policy issues in Philadelphia. Frank brought 35 years of experience in private sector IT and auditing to his position of chief information officer, which he has said was a move of passion due to a “greatly” reduced salary. (His outgoing salary of $209,000 made him the second-highest paid employee the city had at the time).

The Lehigh University graduate and non-practicing CPA co-founded Answerthink, a publicly-traded consulting and research company and rose to a senior partner level with multinational accounting firm KPMG. Coverage
