The next CIO for Nebraska will be Matthew J. McCarville, who was nominated by Governor Jim Pillen.

Gov. Jim Pillen has appointed Matthew J. McCarville as Nebraska’s new CIO, a distinguished technology leader in state government and education.

McCarville, a Nebraskan university student, began working in the position on Monday. He succeeds the outgoing CIO, Ed Toner, whose last day was February 16. Toner retired in 2015, and Mark Neeman, a deputy in the Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO), served as the state’s interim CIO until Pillen chose a permanent replacement. Toner has served as CIO since 2015.

In addition to administering the state’s enterprise applications and infrastructure, McCarville will be responsible for managing an annual appropriations budget of $70 million and directing an IT service-oriented team.

Highlighting McCarville’s extensive background, Pillen stated in a release on Monday that she “looks forward to working with Dr. McCarville to eliminate state reliance on obsolete IT systems and deliver transformative cost savings to taxpayers.”

“Excited to come back to Nebraska after eight years to deliver transformative information technology and cost savings to Nebraska taxpayers,” McCarville wrote in response to the nomination on LinkedIn on Monday night.

For over two years, the new state IT leader was the University of Colorado, Denver’s CIO and assistant vice chancellor for information technology services and operations.

Prior to this, McCarville held positions as chief strategy officer, vice president of education, and data strategy at MTX Consulting Group/Maverick A1. Prior to that, McCarville worked for the state of Florida as its chief data officer, managing the state’s IT requirements for agencies, counties, and educational institutions from March 2020 to March 2021.

McCarville completed his doctorate in business administration, master’s degree in business intelligence and analytics, and bachelor’s degree in business administration at Creighton University in Nebraska.
