Question and Answer with Chris Moore

Q. You’ve been the CIO of Brampton for just over five years. Could you talk about the work you did prior to this and how it prepared you for the work you’re doing now?

A. I held senior positions within the IT industry in both the public and private sectors.

I have built and managed consulting practices, as well as delivered IT solutions within corporations; I have seen the game from every angle.

Q. What have been the biggest challenges within your role and what have been the highlights thus far?

The highlights, I have to say, are the people. I work with and lead an awesome group of IT and customer service professionals. They are skilled at their craft and dedicated to serving the public.
