Michael McVicker is moving up in the Washington state IT hierarchy. He's been named as the acting CIO and interim director of the state's Department of Information Services. McVicker, who will earn $112,000 annually, previously served as the deputy director of operations under Stuart McKee, who's leaving to join Microsoft as the company's U.S. national technology officer. McKee, 37, has served on the governor's cabinet since April 2002.

In his role as deputy director of operations at the Department of Information Services, McVicker oversaw strategic planning, tactical coordination, and production implementation of a statewide telecommunications network, video- and communications-technology services, and a computing-services data center. Before becoming deputy director in 2003, McVicker served as the department's assistant director of the telecommunication services division, responsible for telecom and security services and infrastructure; technology brokering; master contracts; and broadband data, voice, and video communications.

McVicker received a bachelor's degree in computing science and mathematics from Minnesota State University in Mankato, and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
