Federal Communications Commission CIO David Bray, PhD, has chosen to accept a position outside the government sector, FedScoop reports.

In June, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Director Robert Cardillo said Dr. Bray would leave his post at the FCC to head the NGA's new Ventures and Innovation Office. Dr. Bray was slated to helm the agency as its first chief ventures officer, serving as a strategic advisor to NGA leadership.

However, in an email obtained by FedScoop, Dr. Bray wrote he no longer plans to assume the role. Instead, he has accepted a position as executive director of People-Centered Internet, an initiative focused on internet access.

"[PCI Chairman and Co-Founder] Vint Cerf and I were at the Data Summit in Dublin in June when my wife and I found out about a potential adoption," Dr. Bray told FedScoop. "Since then my family life has changed in several good ways."

"While I had previously planned to start a different government role this summer, the opportunity to join the People-Centered Internet coalition as executive director represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," he continued.
