The National Association of State Chief Information Officers (NASCIO) announced Wednesday that it has hired Matt Pincus as its new director of government affairs. In a statement, NASCIO said Pincus will be responsible for its Federal advocacy agenda, policy positions, and managing NASCIO’s partnerships. Pincus most recently served as the deputy legislative director at the National Guard Association. Prior to that, he was a legislative aide in the House of Representatives. “Matt’s background and experience will perfectly situate him to help advance NASCIO’s Federal affairs activities,” said Doug Robinson, NASCIO executive director.
