Consero is honored to announce that Greg Wass will be joining the Forum faculty for Consero's Government IT Forum 2012.
Greg Wass joined Cook County in December 2010 as Chief Information Officer, running the Bureau of Technology under new County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.
Prior to joining the County, Mr. Wass was the CIO for the State of Illinois. During his tenure, Illinois was recognized nationally for transparency of public information on the web, and for improving government operations through consolidation and shared services. Mr. Wass served on the Executive Committee of NASCIO, and was invited to speak at the Harvard Kennedy School's global leadership program on shared services in government. In 2009, Illinois was awarded the largest ever multi-program federal planning grant for its connected health and human services Framework project, and in 2010, the state completed a major modernization of its Unemployment Insurance systems. Mr. Wass has chaired the Illinois Century Network policy committee since 2007, and was the co-author of Governor Quinn's economic plan for Illinois, which focuses on the key role of public infrastructure, including broadband, in economic recovery. Mr. Wass has previously been a management consultant and partner at PTW; consulting director at CGI; and Vice President at ACS Government Services. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Northwestern University, a Master of Arts in Economics from the University of Illinois, and since 2005 has taught courses on technology, sustainability, and globalization in Northwestern's public policy program.

Both projects were developed in collaboration with the new County Chief Information Officer Greg Wass. Wass formerly served as the CIO for the State of Illinois and was an early hire in President Preckwinkle's administration.

"The goals set by President Preckwinkle are very clear. Making the public part of the legislative process is one of the best ways to increase transparency. This is an important first step. We will continue to use technology to build bridges between the public and our elected officials and we're looking forward to hearing your ideas as we build a better Cook County," Wass said.
