Vermont Taps Kristin McClure as Second Chief Data Officer

A recent headcount[3] by Government Technology showed that the majority of states now have a CDO. Tyler Kleykamp, former Connecticut CDO and founder of the State Chief Data Officers Network, said the state CDO role will likely become more prominent, given that state leaders continue to want quick answers to important questions.

McClure was able to put the importance of the CDO into perspective. Since she entered the field, the audience for data science has changed. People in general are beginning to grasp how their beliefs and convictions may not outweigh the data that’s out there. 

“We’re a lot more aware of our data and connected to it, and I think it’s the literacy of data that has grown rapidly over the years — and the ability to frame decisions in the manner of ‘All right, what’s the data to support that?’” McClure said.
