Michael Simeone, who has over 25 years of IT experience, has been appointed as the Chief Technology Officer for New Haven, Connecticut. In his new role, Simeone will oversee the city’s technology budget and integrate technology initiatives across departments. He will work closely with Superintendent Madeline Negron to establish a technology strategy and growth plans for the city’s Board of Education.

Simeone expressed his excitement at applying his expertise in information technology and cybersecurity to lead the city’s day-to-day technology operations, support its technology and efficiency goals, and serve New Haven residents in this important role. His appointment comes after a business email compromise last June, when hackers stole $5.9 million in city funds tied to a bus contract with New Haven Public Schools. The incident was discovered when the company contacted the school district about the missing payment.

In his previous role as Chief Information Officer for Bendett & McHugh, PC, a Connecticut law firm representing large financial institutions, Simeone gained valuable experience in managing complex IT projects and ensuring the security of sensitive data. His expertise in these areas will be crucial in his new role as he works to improve technology capabilities and ensure the security of city systems.

Overall, Simeone’s appointment as New Haven’s first chief technology officer is an important step towards improving the city’s technological capabilities and supporting its ongoing technology initiatives that will benefit residents.
