Voting is now open for the 2024 StateScoop 50 Awards. Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen recently appointed Matthew McCarville, the former Chief Information Officer at the University of Colorado, as the new CIO for the state.

McCarville is an alumnus of Creighton University in Omaha with a Doctorate in Business Administration. Governor Pillen praised McCarville’s broad national and international experience in both public and private sectors by stating, “Dr. McCarville’s extensive background in information technology makes him an invaluable asset. I am eager to collaborate with him to modernize our IT infrastructure and bring about significant savings for our taxpayers.”
