CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald today named Jeff B. Mowry as the county’s new Chief Information Officer.
Mowry will join the newly reorganized Cuyahoga County government in April from Florida, where he currently serves as the Chief Information Officer for the Broward County government.  In this position, Mowry has managed a 16% cost reduction and has implemented an eGovernment application resulting in $2 million per year of online revenue for Broward County.
Before working for Broward County, Mowry spent almost 20 years working for Chrysler in information technology as a Chief Information Officer and as an Information Technology Manager.
“I am thrilled to have Jeff join our team here in Cuyahoga County,” said Ed FitzGerald.  “His proven track record of creating efficiencies in government information technology, greatly reducing costs to the taxpayers and his long-time management skills are all reasons he is uniquely qualified for this position and we look forward to his guidance in the area of information technology.  We also welcome Jeff back to his home state of Ohio.”
Mowry has his bachelor’s degree from Ashland University and his master’s degree from Central Michigan University.  He grew up in Mansfield, Ohio.

Now that's what I'm talking about! Will have to hear more, learn more, but at least the language being spoken is the right one re: e-Government and creating efficiencies and reducing costs to taxpayers. Hopefully, finally, someone who gets it in a position to implement.
