Cuomo Hires New York City’s Chief Digital Officer 

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s administration has been credited for its eager embrace of technology. Now, as the mayor prepares to leave office, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is hiring the city’s chief digital officer to work for the state.

The Bloomberg aide, Rachel S. Haot, an Internet entrepreneur hired in 2011, will take a similar job in Mr. Cuomo’s administration, serving a s deputy secretary for technology, a newly created position in the governor’s office.

Mr. Cuomo’s office said Ms. Haot, 30, would oversee the state’s presence on the web, on mobile platforms and on social media. The governor has already taken some steps to improve the state’s online offerings – in March, he started a web portal with troves of data from state agencies.

“Rachel brings a proven track record of success from her work in both the public and private sectors,” Mr. Cuomo said in a statement, “and I am confident that she will help take New York State’s digital presence to the next level.”

Mr. Bloomberg said in a statement that “the governor made a very smart hire here.”

“Rachel helped us set the standard for how a municipal government can engage the people it serves through digital platforms,” the mayor said, “and her work has made New York City the digital model for cities across the country and around the world.”
