New Haven Appoints Michael Simeone as its First Chief Technology Officer: Enhancing Technological Capabilities and Cybersecurity

Michael Simeone, a seasoned IT professional with over 25 years of experience, has been appointed as the Chief Technology Officer for New Haven, Connecticut by Mayor Justin Elicker. In this new role, Simeone will be responsible for overseeing the city’s technology budget and integrating technology initiatives across different departments.

Simeone expressed his excitement for applying his expertise in information technology and cyber security to guide the city’s day-to-day technology operations, support its technology and efficiency goals, and serve New Haven residents in this important role. His appointment comes after a business email compromise last June, where hackers stole $5.9 million in city funds related to a New Haven Public Schools bus contract. The incident was discovered when the company contacted the school district about a missing payment.

Simeone recently served as the Chief Information Officer for Bendett & McHugh, P.C., a Connecticut law firm representing large financial institutions. As part of his duties, he worked closely with Superintendent Madeline Negron to establish technology strategies and growth plans for the city’s Board of Education.

Overall, Simeone’s role as the city’s first Chief Technology Officer will play a crucial part in enhancing technological capabilities, ensuring the security of city systems, and supporting the ongoing technology initiatives that will benefit the residents of New Haven.
