Annapolis, MD (May 25, 2023) - County Executive Steuart Pittman announced Jack Martin will serve as the County’s Chief Information Officer. Martin’s appointment begins today; he had served as the Acting CIO since March 17.

Martin brings more than 20 years of experience in IT in a variety of disciplines including GIS, project management, and software development.
