First Chief Technology Officer appointed in New Haven, Conn.

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 leading the city’s technology efforts and driving its technology initiatives across different departments.

Simeone is excited to apply his knowledge of information technology and cybersecurity to improve the city’s day-to-day operations and support its technology and efficiency goals. His appointment comes in the wake of a business email compromise last June that resulted in the theft of $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.

Prior to his current appointment, Simeone served as the Chief Information Officer for Bendett & McHugh, P.C., a Connecticut law firm representing large financial institutions. In this role, he oversaw the firm’s technology budget and integrated technology initiatives across different departments.

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