RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The deputy chief of North Carolina state government’s information systems agency has moved into the top spot.

Gov. Pat McCrory’s office announced Friday the new state chief information officer is Keith Werner of Raleigh. He’s been acting CIO since Chris Estes stepped down last month after nearly three years at the post to take a private-sector job.

The job of state chief information officer recently became an official Cabinet post as the information technology office expanded to a full-fledged department under McCrory’s control.

The governor’s office says Werner has more than 20 years of experience in leading and managing businesses. Recently, he was chief information officer for natural and economic resources, covering three Cabinet agencies.
