Bryan IT director is first in Texas to receive designation
Gustavo Roman, Bryan’s Director of Information Technology, is the first in Texas to graduate from the nationally acclaimed Certified Government Chief Information Officers Program offered by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, officials announced Monday.
The program, started in 2004, is the first local government-specific program for Chief Information Officers in the nation. The 12-month program is designed for government IT directors whose responsibilities require a broad understanding of management, leadership and enterprise topics. The course is approximately 240 hours in length. Course instruction covers enterprise issues, strategic technology planning, communication, project management, emerging trends, risk assessment and management, acquisition management, change management, leadership, security and financial trends.
Gus Roman is one of the nine elite public sector employees who successfully completed the course this year receiving their CGCIO designation. Over the course of its six-year existence, the program has graduated more than 325 public sector IT professionals.
“Gus is an incredible asset to our team at the City of Bryan,” said Deputy City Manager Hugh Walker. “He is hard-working and enthusiastic, always looking to educate himself and better serve the City of Bryan.”
