Denver CIO Leaves City for Private Industry



Chuck Frederick, former CIO, Denver

November 19, 2012 By

Denver, Colo., is looking for a new CIO.

Chuck Fredrick, who served as Denver's CIO and interim CIO for nearly two years, left public service to accept a job at a Denver-based company, according to the city. Fredrick, whose official last day with the city was Nov. 9, also served the city and county of Denver as deputy CIO and director of enterprise applications. Prior to his service in Denver, Fredrick served Douglas County, Colo., as deputy CIO and chief technology officer, and worked in several IT management positions at Nextel Communications.

“We greatly appreciate Chuck’s service to the city and county of Denver over the years,” said Press Secretary Amber Miller. “In his time with the city, he led Denver forward by defining a world-class technology department and the steps that we should take to reach that goal.”

Fredrick will be replaced by Michael Wright from the IT department as interim CIO until the mayor and senior staff identify the best candidate to fill the CIO position.

Chuck didn't define anything while at the City other than setting a new standard for poor management and dishonesty that engendered a tidal wave of criticism, complaints, and defections. Just before he left, he assured everyone in TS that he was in for "the long haul" and would not follow the example of his predecessors Molly Rauzi and Alphonse Rosabal and leave for a job in private enterprise. The entire department breathed a sigh of relief when he once again went back on his word.
