Michigan Department Director Leaving For Private Sector Job

Jun 2, 2017

The director of Michigan's Department of Technology, Management and Budget is leaving his post to pursue a job opportunity in the private sector.

Gov. Rick Snyder announced Friday that David Behen, who also serves as the state's chief information officer, plans to step down June 16. Behen started with the department as state CIO in February 2011 and added department director to his title in March 2014.

Snyder's office says the new job is with a Michigan-based company.

Current Chief Deputy Director Brom Stibitz will serve as the interim director. The about 3,000-employee department provides financial, administrative and technology services and information to Michigan's state agencies, residents, businesses, local governments and universities.
