Todd Nacapuy, the state’s Chief Information Officer, announced he will resign at the start of the new year.

Nacapuy, who was appointed by Gov. David Ige in 2015, announced he would return to the private sector after assisting with a transition, according to a press release.

The governor has yet to announce a replacement.

Hawaii Chief Information Officer Todd Nacapuy is leaving his post at year’s end.

“It has been a tremendous honor serving the State of Hawaii as its CIO. I thank the employees at the Office of Enterprise Technology Services for their hard work and dedication,” Nacapuy said in a press release. “Together, we made meaningful progress toward Gov. David Ige’s vision of modernizing the State’s systems.”

This comes as Nacapuy was to be given a job review by the Information Technology Steering Committee, an 11-member committee tasked with assisting the state CIO in implementing tech projects.

Last year, the committee gave him an overall grade of B-minus.

He’s credited for several major tech projects in the state. One of them, the Hawaii Department Dashboard, was awarded the first Chaucer Digital innovation Award earlier this year.
