The long-time chief information officer of Victoria’s Department of Premier and Cabinet, David Butler, will leave his position next week for another public service role.
A spokesperson confirmed to iTnews that Butler will finish up on May 11 to take up a new role elsewhere in the state government, but wouldn't indicate where.
Butler has been responsible for the department's IT direction as CIO and director of operations since April 2014.
He also spent a brief stint as the assistant director of corporate resources at the department, and before that was the director of infrastructure and facilities management at the Victorian Department of Primary Industries.
DPC is now looking for a new tech chief as it prepares to embark on the “next phase of its digital transition strategy”.
Reporting to the executive director of corporate services, the CIO will oversee “a diverse range of corporate functions”, including IT, fleet management and freedom of information.
The successful candidate will need to have a strong customer service focus, and bring “an entrepreneurial approach to digital transformation”, the department said.
