City Appoints New Chief Information Systems Officer

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) TALLAHASSEE, Fla., March 8 -- The city of Tallahassee issued the following news release: Tallahassee City Manager Anita Favors Thompson today announced the appointment of Sabrina Holloman as chief information systems officer (CISO) of the City of Tallahassee's Information Systems Services (ISS). Holloman has served as interim CISO of ISS since October 2010, following the retirement of former CISO Don DeLoach. Prior to her interim appointment, she served as Public Safety Systems Administrator for ISS, a position she held since January 2008. She began her career with the City of Tallahassee in November 2001 as a project manager in ISS. She also worked for 11 years as a systems manager for The Procter and Gamble Company in Albany, Ga.

The City of Tallahassee's Information Systems Services provides technology and telecommunications services to all City departments, providing infrastructure, support, maintenance and project management for 20 locations and over 30 internal departments that interconnect with numerous external agencies. ISS is a division of the Department of Management and Administration (DMA). In her role as CISO, Holloman will manage a staff of 82 and maintain responsibility for a budget of $17 million.

"I'm pleased that Sabrina has accepted the challenge to lead ISS," said Raoul Lavin, director of DMA, who noted that Holloman was selected for the position after the City conducted an extensive nationwide search. "Her comprehensive experience with information systems and proven project management skills combined to make her the obvious choice for the position. I believe Sabrina has the skills to lead ISS to the next level in terms of technology and customer service, particularly in working with the area's public safety agencies through the on-going joint dispatch efforts." During her tenure as Public Safety Systems Administrator for ISS, Holloman oversaw the Public Safety Systems Integration project, which replaced the Tallahassee Police Department's and Tallahassee Fire Department's computer aided dispatch systems, records management systems and installed mobile computers in all vehicles.

Holloman holds a bachelor's degree in computer information systems from Florida A&M University. She is a Certified Public Manager, a member of the National Forum of Black Public Administrators and is on the boards of the Academy of Information Technology at Godby High School, the Tri-IT Grant Program and the Florida Digital Government Summit. Her appointment is effective immediately.
