Kristen Baldwin Takes on CIO Role at Office of the Comptroller of the Currency

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency has selected Kristen Baldwin as its new chief information officer. Baldwin, a past Potomac Officers Club speaker, moved to the OCC from the Federal Aviation Administration where she served as CIO and assistant administrator for information and technology services. At the FAA, she was responsible for the delivery of IT services and products enabling the FAA’s mission and strategic plan.

In her new role, she is helping the OCC ensure that national banks and federal savings associations are operating in a safe manner, FedScoop reported. She also leads IT operations; manages security and privacy programs, compliance and enterprise architecture; and oversees systems modernization.

Besides the CIO role, Baldwin was appointed as the senior agency official for records management. Her responsibilities include monitoring OCC’s compliance with all applicable records management statutes, regulations and policies.

Michael Hsu, acting comptroller of the currency, said Baldwin brings to the agency her experience developing IT strategies and services.

Baldwin’s public service career includes time spent as the Department of Transportation’s deputy CIO and associate CIO for IT policy and oversight and as the director of the resource management office for the Office of the Chief Information Officer.

Baldwin earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia and a master’s degree in information systems from George Washington University.
