The capital-intensive task of transforming cities into thriving, efficient digital ecosystems is encouraging federal & state governments to explore new partnership models. The IoTC is committed to the growth of the smart city industry, and we are privileged to have an esteemed advisory board to help guide our path forward. It is more critical than ever that the IoT industry understands the perspective of government, and vice versa. We feel strongly that the IoTC is uniquely positioned to provide the venue for constructive, results-oriented dialogue to this end.
Today, we are honored to announce that Michael Mattmiller has joined our advisory board. Michael has spent his career helping governments leverage technology to better serve the public. Serving as the City of Seattle's Chief Technology Officer from 2014 to 2018, Michael led the creation of the City's consolidated tech department comprised of more than 650 professionals and supported a shared service delivery structure focused on delivering modern services to city departments ranging from public safety to transportation and electric and water utilities. He created the city's smart cities program, driving the expanded use of sensors in the infrastructure environment in a manner that built public trust. He also expanded the city's open data program.
Prior to his role at the City of Seattle, Michael worked at Microsoft and PricewaterhouseCoopers, facilitating the creation of technology governance, security and privacy programs.
Michael’s hybrid background, featuring both public and private sector experience will be an invaluable asset to our organization, our members, and the forward-thinking work we will collaborate on in 2018 and beyond.
Welcome to the IoTC, Michael!
