The City-County Information Technology Board has promoted Elliott Patrick to chief information officer for the city of Indianapolis. He has been with the City-County’s Information Services Agency since 2014, serving as a business services consultant before becoming chief financial officer in 2016 and chief operating officer in 2018. Patrick assumed the position of interim director in January following Ken Clark’s move from CIO to city controller. He is the first Black CIO for the City-County and serves as a member of Mayor Hogsett’s cabinet.
As CFO, Patrick accumulated nearly $500K in savings through infrastructure decommissions. As COO, he led the city’s transition to the Indiana Office of Technology data center and spearheaded the $30 million infrastructure RFP, which was awarded to a local firm for the first time in 24 years. More recently, as interim CIO, Patrick quickly transitioned the City-County enterprise to remote work, allowing the delivery of government services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
