Jason Hebbe has been named chief technology officer of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth within the Office of Management. His first day was May 29, according to agency spokesman Dan Egan.
This comes after the departure of former CEO Sean Crager, who made the decision to leave the role after accepting a position in the private sector. Crager’s last day at work was May 28, Egan noted.
Hebbe worked directly under Crager and was the logical choice to take over, Egan added.
Hebbe has worked for the Commonwealth for more than nine years, most recently as chief operating officer, according to his LinkedIn account. In this role, he supported the CTO’s strategy by providing guidance on information technology services and technology oversight.
Prior to working in the state government, he spent more than 15 years in the private sector, holding multiple positions in a variety of industries, including banking, manufacturing and logistics.
According to the Commonwealth website, Hebbe has completed leadership, finance and project management studies, in addition to receiving multiple technology certifications.
