CIO Terry Phillis Logs Off @ City Hall

Terry Phillis, the city's Chief Information Officer, resigned his post today, effective July 31.  Managing Director Camille Barnett is expected to name an acting CIO by Friday while a national search is launched to find his replacement.

Phillis, who replaced former CIO Dianah Neff in August 2006, had the fifth-largest city salary at $199,409.  Mayor Nutter, in a statement today, thanked him for his efforts, especially his role in the recent hand-off of the city's wireless Internet network from EarthLink to a local group of investors.
