The City of Reno has appointed Craig Franden to be the new director of the Department of Information Technology (DoIT), according to the city’s press release.
“We’re excited that Craig is joining our team and taking the helm of DoIT as our newest director,” City Manager Doug Thornley said. “For nearly 25 years, he’s been instrumental in developing and implementing technology in all areas of our local justice system. Now he will bring that wealth of experience and expertise to local government.”
Franden started the new position on Sept. 19 and has since overseen managing information systems at the local level in Reno, which includes citywide networks, software implementation, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
“Managing a City’s information infrastructure is no small task, and I’m honored to take on this important responsibility,” Franden said. “I look forward to enhancing the digital experience for both residents and employees.”
Franden comes to the new position having worked for the Second Judicial District Court as the chief technology officer.
