Detroit Mayor Names Chief Information Officer


DETROIT — Mayor Mike Duggan has named Beth Niblock as chief information officer. As Detroit’s CIO, Niblock is responsible for the renewal of Detroit government’s technology.

“Our city’s poor technological systems and infrastructure waste financial resources and negatively affect our ability to deliver virtually every service we provide our residents,” Duggan said.  “In Beth Niblock, we have recruited an accomplished and innovative leader whose talents have been recognized at the highest levels in our country.”

Niblock served the same role in Louisville, KY. “Under Beth’s leadership, Louisville has been recognized year after year for its progressive technology — from Best of Web awards for the city website,, to numerous honors for Best Digital Government,” said Greg Fischer, Lousville mayor. “Detroit is getting a dynamic and effective chief technology officer. Our city thanks Beth for her many years of service.”

“It was a difficult decision to leave Louisville, my hometown, but I am energized by the challenge of being a part of the team to rebuild Detroit,” Niblock said.
