LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 30, 2016) — AMR team member Eric Sweden, Enterprise Architecture
and Governance Program Director for the National Association of State Chief Information
Officers, an AMR client partner, recently completed the Public Technology Institute and Rutgers
University School of Public Affairs and Administration’s Certified Government Chief Information
Officer (CGCIO) program with honors.
The CGCIO Certification Program is a 12-month course that lays the foundation for addressing
the most critical issues facing IT leadership in the public sector. The program aims to equip
leaders with the tools necessary to manage and improve their organization’s technology assets.
Sweden has been a member of the AMR team for more than 13 years. As NASCIO Executive
Director Doug Robinson explained, “Eric works directly with public sector IT leaders and wants
to better understand the demands on our state members. As long as I’ve known Eric he’s been
in a continuous learning mode and completion of this rigorous certification is just another
testament to his curiosity and discipline.”
AMR President and Chief Operating Officer Nick Ruffin noted, “Eric has been such a valuable
asset to AMR and his NASCIO team. This is just another example of the kind of leadership that
he has demonstrated throughout his career.”
