The HP veteran previously claimed to Columbia University in 2015 that she aspired to become a CIO, a role that she will now assume.

Having worked for the tech giant for more than 30 years, Hildebrand held a number of leading roles in her final years at Hewlett-Packard. These include Senior Director of Global Business Services, Senior Director of Customer Advocacy and, most recently, Vice President of Customer and Partner Advocacy.

She will replace former CIO Richard McKinney who left the agency in January for a new position as Vice President of Enterprise IT Strategy at AECOM, picking up a number of initiatives that McKinney had started including further modernisation of the DoT infrastructure.

Hildebrand’s appointment comes at the same time as the departure of the long-standing Patent and Trademark CIO John Owens, who is set to step down from his position on 3 November this year.
