Commerce Department Announces Resignation of Andre Mendes as CIO
The Department of Commerce’s information technology chief will soon vacate his position to take a job in Tarrant County, Texas.
The department has announced the resignation of Andre Mendes as chief information officer, effective at the end of December. His resignation comes after 14 years of working in the federal government, FedScoop reported.
In a LinkedIn post, Mendes said that the over 14 years he spent working for the federal government have far exceeded his expectations.
The outgoing Commerce CIO has made a name in information technology over the years, including holding management roles at the International Trade Administration and the U.S. Agency for Global Media, formerly the U.S. Broadcasting Board of Governors.
His new role at Tarrant County starts Jan. 2, 2024.
Mendes has made a mark at the department, implementing changes and driving innovation and modernization. He has been championing the implementation of zero trust strategies in federal agencies and organizations to combat cyberattacks.
He also helmed the effort to ensure the department’s transition to cloud-based software-as-a-service due to the benefits it offers.
