Juliane Gallina, who currently leads key accounts at IBM’s (NYSE: IBM) U.S. federal business, will assume the chief information officer role at the CIA on April 1, Federal Times reported Tuesday.

She will succeed John Edwards, who will continue to serve as deputy chief operating officer at the agency.

“Welcoming Juliane back to the agency to lead our global IT efforts will ensure CIA continues to outpace our adversaries in IT innovation,” said Andy Makridis, chief operating officer at the CIA.
