Cook County Chief Information Officer Tom Lynch Honored as Top Doer, Dreamer and Driver

Government Technology Magazine this week announced Cook County Chief Information Officer (CIO) Tom Lynch was among its 2022 Top 25 Doers, Dreamers and Drivers.

“Cook County’s Bureau of Technology has made great strides under Lynch’s leadership with major modernization projects such as the Integrated Tax Processing System and employee-focused innovative projects like the new Learning Management System,” Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said. “I am grateful for his leadership and service to the County.”

Featured in Government Technology’s April/May issue, this year’s roster of honorees includes county CIOs and agency leaders, state CISOs and diversity advocates, and technologists working behind the scenes to keep the public sector running, who are all striving to improve services and quality of life across the country.

“At the Bureau of Technology, we are empowering individuals with the ability to access data; we are moving from paper to digital and from mainframe to Software as a Service,” Lynch said. “The Bureau of Technology played a major role in many of Cook County’s recent efforts, from rolling out vaccines to enabling remote operations, and that role continues to grow as we move further into the twenty first century.”

“The 2022 class of Doers, Dreamers and Drivers is an impressive group of leaders whose work is driving important changes in how government serves constituents,” said Noelle Knell, editor of Government Technology magazine. “Our hope is that their stories will inspire readers, as they did us, to continue to seek opportunities to modernize and transform their organizations.”
