Colorado Chief Technology Officer David McCurdy will resign next week after five years with state’s IT agency. McCurdy, who joined the state government in 2014 after a decade as an executive with a nonprofit health system, Catholic Health Initiatives, said he’s leaving his current role to start a consulting company. He said his new firm will begin with a nationwide project related to 5G wireless technologies and artificial intelligence. A non-disclosure agreement stopped him from saying more, but he said an announcement containing details on the project will appear within the next two weeks. As for his time in Colorado state government, McCurdy described the past five years as an “amazingly rewarding experience” that he recommended to anyone seeking meaningful work. Dan Santangelo, the chief operating officer and deputy CTO at the Colorado Governor’s Office of Information Technology, will serve as McCurdy’s interim replacement when he leaves on Oct. 5 and the state begins searching for a permanent replacement.
