Do any of you read On the Move, my roundup of CIO announcements that appears in every first of the month issue of CIO? If so, please use the “Add Comment” mechanism on this blog to let me know what you think of On the Move, what you’d like to see in it, or how On the Move should differ from this blog.  Now that I’m maintaining this blog on a daily basis, my editor and I want to differentiate On the Move from this blog to make the best use of each medium, and your feedback is important in determining the steps we take. 

And now for what you really came here to read…

Having served his country for 26 years, retired U.S. Army Colonel Joseph (Tom) Catudal joined Segovia, a provider of voice, data and video broadband satellite services to the U.S. military, as senior vice president of engineering and operations.  Catudal recently served as the Coalition Provisional Authority’s CIO and director of information and communications technology in Iraq.  Prior to his deployment to Baghdad, the decorated leader served as the deputy director of information operations, networks and space in the Office of the Army CIO/G6.  

Intelli-Check, a provider of identification verification systems, elected John E. (Jay) Maxwell to its board of directors.  Maxwell recently retired from his post as senior vice president of IT and CIO at the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, a position he had held since June 2002. 

Michael D. Boltz was named executive vice president and CIO of AmerUs Group.  Boltz, 47, comes to the Des Moines, Iowa-based life insurance company from Charles Schwab where he most recently worked as vice president of capital markets, asset management products and services technology.   

Todd Hinkel doesn’t have to travel far to start his new job as CIO of TravelCLICK.  The provider of e-commerce solutions for hotels is based outside of Chicago, which is where Hinkel last worked as the co-founder and president of Customer Evolutions, a company that provides software and services for integrating customer data.  In his new role, he reports to TravelCLICK’s COO Jeff Bzdawka.

Jonathan Stowe is heading back to school as senior vice president and CIO for Heald College, a nonprofit, private career college.  A UConn graduate, Stowe most recently worked for John Wiley and Sons where as director of new initiatives he was responsible for the higher education division’s technology strategy, developing strategic partnerships, and for the publisher’s e-learning platform.
