Orlando City officials have appointed Roberto Lopez as the new citywide Chief Information Officer (CIO) after serving as the deputy CIO for two years. The announcement was made via a post on LinkedIn, where it was stated that Lopez would assume his new role as the top technology official in the city starting next week. Lopez’s journey with the Orlando city government began in 2001 as a technology business analyst, and he has since held various positions within the IT department, including 16 years as a computer operations manager before being promoted to deputy CIO in 2022.

The City of Orlando expressed their confidence in Lopez, highlighting his 23 years of dedicated service to the city and his significant contributions during his tenure as Deputy Chief Information Officer. The city views him as the ideal candidate for this important position following the retirement announcement of former CIO Rosa Akhtarkhavari, who served Orlando for 32 years.

In response to his promotion, Lopez expressed gratitude for the mentorship and guidance he received from key figures throughout his career, particularly mentioning Alberto Pabon at the beginning of his professional journey and Rosa Akhtarkhavari in recent times. Lopez’s appointment marks a significant milestone in his career progression within the Orlando city government’s IT department.
