Holy Promotion, Batman! The Big Z is headed to work for Double-D!
Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced today that he will appoint David Zolnowsky of Madison, South Dakota, to be the next Commissioner of the state Bureau of Information and Telecommunications (BIT).
Zolnowsky is the Director of Computing Services and Chief Information Officer for Dakota State University, a position he has held since 1985.Â In that role, he led management of Dakota Stateâ€™s computing infrastructure to stay on the cutting edge of technology education.Â He has also worked closely with BIT in administering the K-12 Data Center, which provides information technology and email services to K-12 schools, state government, and state universities [Governor's office, press release, 2012.07.03].
My Herman township neighbor worked for the state in Pierre from 1973 to 1985. As he returns to the seat of our democracy, he'll do a fine job rooting out the bugs and serving as South Dakota's chief information officer. Go get 'em, Z!
