Deputy Federal CIO, Executive Office of the President

Federal Leadership

After serving as executive director of product engineering at the Department of Veterans Affairs, Drew Myklegard got the call to serve as acting deputy federal CIO in early 2022, after joining the Office of the Federal CIO as associate deputy federal CIO a few months before that. Then just recently, the Office of Management and Budget made that role a permanent one for Myklegard. As deputy federal CIO, Myklegard has a wide-ranging portfolio of responsibilities, including high-level management and day-to-day oversight of the federal CIO’s strategic objectives, effectively acting as a chief of staff for the federal CIO, taking on the management of keystone projects and to an extent for managing relationships with service providers.
