In announcing the move Raj noted: “Dear Friends, This is my last week at Deloitte! Leaving the firm has been the toughest decision I have had to make in my 25-year professional career. I have cherished every minute of my 6 years with the firm alongside awesome leaders and great minds, and a culture that is simply the best….I will be starting my new career journey as the first civilian CIO of the United States Army leading a $10 Billion, 15,000-person global IT organization. This move was not one that I had planned, but the call for public service is my duty. It’s also an exciting opportunity to put technology front and center to Army modernization leveraging cloud, AI and data analytics to achieve digital overmatch against our adversaries. I am confident our paths will cross in the future.” Read the post here.
