Aneesh Chopra was appointed by President Obama as the first United States Chief Technology Officer in 2009. As an Assistant to the President, he designed the National Wireless Initiative and executed an “open innovation” strategy across the agencies built on private sector collaboration.
This opened data to transform health, energy and education markets, convened tech leaders to develop consensus standards, and sponsored prizes, challenges and competitions to tap into entrepreneurial problem solvers.
Chopra previously served as Virginia’s Secretary of Technology and has returned as a Senior Advisor with The Advisory Board Company, a global research, consulting, and technology firm helping hospital executives to better serve patients, where he previously served as Managing Director.
In 2011, Chopra was named to Modern Healthcare’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in Healthcare (#39) and in 2008, to Government Technology magazine’s Top 25 in their Doers, Dreamers, and Drivers issue. Chopra earned his master’s degree in public policy from Harvard University in 1997 and his bachelor’s degree from The Johns Hopkins University in 1994.
