Chief Digital Officer
Thom Guertin joined Rhode Island’s State government ranks in late 2012 as Rhode Island’s first Chief Digital Officer and now CIO. Mr. Guertin’s background is in application development, project management and technology strategy, most often working with business to discern the right process improvements and then how best to apply technology to the solution. Thom was one of the first five employees responsible for the launch of Monster.com, the groundbreaking employment website. From there he went on to work in business technology solutions for Titleist and FootJoy, followed by almost a decade at The Boston Globe and New York Times. He also helped found Code Island, the local branch of Code for America, a volunteer organization dedicated to improving the community through technology.
