County Chief Information Officer Selected
(Santa Ana, CA) — Interim Chief Information Officer Christina Koslosky has been chosen by CEO Mike Giancola to permanently lead the County’s Office of Information Technology, effective immediately.
Koslosky has served as the interim chief since March 2014, after the departure of former CIO Mahesh Patel. She was named assistant CIO in February 2012, moving from her role as director of Information Technology finance and sourcing. She was hired in February 2008 to help navigate the conversion of the County’s aging information technology systems.
“Christina Koslosky has my full confidence to continue leading the County’s IT efforts amid some complex and challenging projects,” Giancola said. “She has been a tremendous addition to the team and we look forward to her continued leadership.”
Prior to joining the County, Koslosky worked for 17 years for global computer giant Ingram Micro Inc. of Santa Ana, where she gained broad experience in IT development and support, operations and infrastructure, and systems architecture and governance.
“I’m proud to be a member of the CEO’s office and to be given this opportunity,” Koslosky said.
The CEO Office of Information Technology provides IT solutions across County departments and agencies for voice communications, network and Internet access, as well as server hosting and data center services. Key areas of focus for the department include implementation of a next-generation voice and network environment, further implementation of a managed services support model and the establishment of Countywide collaboration tools.
