The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has appointed Allen Hill as its new chief information officer (CIO), with a start date of August 1.

Hill is currently the deputy assistant commissioner for category management, Office of Information Technology Category (ITC), in the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS).

Hill first joined ITC in 2018 and has overseen growth of programs such as the Defense Enterprise Office Solution (DEOS), 2nd Generation Information Technology Blanket Purchase Agreements (2GIT BPAs), 8(a) STARS III, Polaris, and the USAccess USPS pilot.

“Allen’s contribution to ITC’s success over the last three-plus years cannot be understated. I value him as a colleague, a leader, and a friend. While it is a loss for us, I’m also truly excited for his next professional chapter,” Laura Stanton, assistant commissioner of the ITC, said in an email to ITC staff, which MeriTalk obtained.

“Given the deep bonds he has built throughout GSA, I am confident our paths will continue to cross in the Federal space. So rather than say goodbye, I will look forward to working with him to ensure the FCC has a full suite of IT and telecommunications products, services, and solutions to enable their mission,” Stanton added.

Hill will take over the FCC CIO role from Andrea Simpson, the FCC’s chief information security officer, who is currently serving as the acting CIO.

At GSA, Larry Hale will act as the deputy assistant commissioner for category management starting on August 1.
