Voting is now open for the 2024 StateScoop 50 Awards. Wyoming’s interim chief information officer, Timothy “TR” Sheehan, has announced his resignation from his role as the state’s top technology official. Governor Mark Gordon has appointed Chief Information Security Officer Aaron Roberts to replace Sheehan. Roberts, who has been with the state’s Enterprise Technology Services department since 2021, will assume the role of interim CIO starting next Monday.

This transition marks Sheehan’s second term as Wyoming’s interim CIO; he previously held the position from May 2021 to January 2022 when former CIO Bill Vajda resigned due to health issues. Sheehan led the state enterprise technology division during his tenure, focusing on strategic IT initiatives and actively participating in the Cyber Assistance Response Effort (CARE) team and advisory boards.

Sheehan, reflecting on his time as Wyoming’s CIO, expressed gratitude for the opportunity to work with dedicated and talented individuals in public service. He highlighted the teamwork and shared experiences that have characterized his time in office.

Governor Gordon praised Sheehan’s contributions and appointed Roberts to take over as interim CIO. Roberts’ experience within the state’s technology services department positions him well for this new role. With voting underway for the prestigious StateScoop 50 Awards, Wyoming’s tech leadership transition reflects ongoing developments in the state’s digital landscape.
