Former U.S. chief tech officer Chopra to rejoin Advisory Board
The White House announced in January that Chopra would step down as CTO, a role to which he was appointed in 2009. Chopra had served as a managing director for the Advisory Board earlier in his career, before he was named Virginia's secretary of technology and then later as the country's first CTO.
In the newly created position at the Advisory Board, Chopra, 39, will consult with hospitals on technology and open-data issues, according to a news release. In addition, he will be involved in the company's business development and strategic planning efforts.
"As the federal government's first CTO, Aneesh drove sweeping change with his signature optimism and passion for the transformative power of technology," said Robert Musslewhite, CEO of the Advisory Board, in the news release. "We are thrilled to tap into his unique insights and experience to spur innovation and benefit our members."
