Steve Reneker Makes a Move to Los Angeles



December 13, 2012 By

One of the nation's top government CIOs is taking the reins in Los Angeles.

Steve Reneker, named one of Government Technology's Top 25 Doers, Drivers and Dreamers for 2012, was announced on Dec. 13, as permanent general manager of the city of Los Angeles' Information Technology Agency (ITA).

For the first 90 days, Reneker said he plans to inventory all systems and prioritize what needs replacement, and analyze the systems with high maintenance costs and target them for replacement. "I will also place a large focus on the development of an annual strategic plan, enhanced 311, a project office to focus staff on fewer and more highly visible projects, and increase internal operational efficiencies and customer service," he said in an email interview.

Reneker, who previously retired from Riverside, Calif., as its CIO, started his government career in Los Angeles, working on computer programming systems for the agency that he will now oversee.

And being familiar with the city's processes and technology, and having “extensive experience” in IT, Reneker will lead the ITA well, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa stated in a letter to city council. “Steve’s accomplishments demonstrate an innovative skill set that we are excited to bring to Los Angeles, especially as we continue to streamline the City’s digital infrastructure,” Villaraigosa said. “We look forward to having him on board as we transition into the 21st century.”
