The U.S. Census Bureau has dubbed Kevin Smith CIO and associate director for information technology.

Previously, Mr. Smith worked at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He has also done consulting work for Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies.

In his new role, Mr. Smith will serve as the principal advisor to the director and deputy director on information resources and information systems management. He is replacing Deputy CIO Harry Lee, who has been serving in an acting role since former CIO Brian McGrath left last July, according to the Federal Times.

"Kevin Smith has the exact skill set and experience the Census Bureau needs. He's been an IT leader in both government and the private sector, making him uniquely qualified to lead our technological transformation," Census Bureau Director John Thompson said. "Kevin will also be an immediate asset to our 2020 census planning."
