Francisco Salguero will be the next CIO of the Federal Communications Commission.

Salguero, currently deputy CIO with the Department of Agriculture, will take over the role at the beginning of December, several sources close to the agency confirmed to FedScoop.

Salguero has been with Agriculture for more than 14 years, rising to the level of department-level deputy CIO in 2017. He also spent several years in the private sector serving government prior to that.

Most recently at USDA he’s worked closely with CIO Gary Washington in the department’s modernization efforts in partnership with the administration’s Centers of Excellence program.

John Skuldarek has been serving as acting CIO at the FCC since Christine Calvosa left the role in May. Prior to that, David Bray was FCC’s CIO for four years.
