National Service Agency Names Mazariegos As New Chief Information Officer

 

(Washington, D.C.) – The Corporation for National and Community Service announced today that Rudy Mazariegos has been named the agency’s Chief Information Officer.

As CIO, Mazariegos will lead the agency’s efforts to use technology and information to support its vast network of grantees and partners in helping to improve lives and strengthen communities. The Corporation currently uses a variety of online systems for grant application and management, recruiting, financial operations, progress reporting, member communication, and sharing effective practices with its network of more than 7,000 grantees and subgrantees. Mazariegos will oversee capital planning and technology investment, implement information security and privacy safeguards, and advise the CEO on technology enhancements to help the Corporation operate more efficiently and effectively.

“To keep the vast national service and volunteer networks connected, we need to be savvy in our use of technology,” said David Eisner, CEO of the national service agency, which administers the Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America programs. “I’m delighted we have someone of Rudy’s caliber and experience to lead our efforts in using technology to help our grantees and volunteers make a difference in their communities.”

Mazariegos most recently served as deputy CIO of another federal agency, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, where he was responsible for modernizing the organization’s network operating system and customer service center while reducing the its information technology budget.

Mazariegos holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Maryland University College and received an International Business Management Certificate from Georgetown University. He also is certified in computer security and received a federal chief information officer certificate from the General Service Administration CIO University. His volunteer commitments include four years as a soccer coach with the Catholic Youth Organization in Silver Spring, Md.

“Information technology is an integral part of achieving the Corporation’s goals,” Mazariegos said. “I’m proud to be joining an agency with such an important mission and talented staff.”

In announcing the appointment, Eisner also thanked Kimberly Sweet, who served as acting CIO at the Corporation for the past six months. “Kim did a wonderful job, leading a restructuring effort that encompassed the entire IT operation. Her knowledge of these systems will serve her well as she resumes her role as Senior Advisor at the Corporation,” he said.

The Corporation for National and Community Service strives to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. The Corporation provides opportunities for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to serve their communities and country through Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, and Learn and Serve America. Together with the USA Freedom Corps, the Corporation is working to build a culture of citizenship, service, and responsibility in America. For more information, visit http://www.nationalservice.gov.
