BATON ROUGE – U.S. President Donald J. Trump announced his intent to appoint LSU alumna Suzette Kuhlow Kent to be administrator of the Office of Electronic Government, Office of Management and Budget – a position commonly known as federal CIO. Kent graduated from LSU in May 1990 with a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

According to the White House’s nomination announcement, Kent is an industry leader of large-scale business transformation using technology, for the world’s most complex organizations. She is currently a principal with Ernst & Young’s financial services practice and has been a partner at Accenture, consulting president at Carreker Corporation and a managing director at JPMorgan.
