Chief Technology Officer at White House leaving for Silicon Valley, says report

Todd Park

Todd Park, one of the officials tied to the disastrous rollout of the Obama Administration’s health care website, is reportedly leaving his job as Chief Technology Officer by the end of the year.

According to a report in Fortune, multiple sources say that Park will be moving to Silicon Valley with his family by the end of the year, but that he will continue to work on White House related projects from there.

Park, who co-founded two healthcare IT companies, joined the White House as chief technology officer for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2009. He was promoted to CTO for the United States in 2012, where he advised President Obama, including during the botched launch of healthcare.gov in October of last year.

Fortune said the White House, which did not comment on Park’s departure, is looking for a successor from the ranks of Google, LinkedIn and Twitter.

News of Park moving on comes one week after his deputy CTO, privacy expert, Nicole Wong, likewise announced her departure.
