The State Department now has its first permanent CIO in more than a year. Stuart McGuigan was announced on Tuesday as the new CIO and head of the agency’s Bureau of Information Resource Management.  McGuigan most recently served as CIO at Johnson & Johnson and was previously CIO at CVS. He replaces Karen Mummaw, who served as the Department’s acting CIO since Frontis Wiggins retired from the position in December 2017.
