Pennsylvania is positioned for growth. In the next 12 months, Pennsylvania will grow past Illinois and Indonesia to become the 22nd largest economy in the world. We will be a $700 Billion economy in less than three years. Every day Pennsylvania business is producing innovation. In state government Governor Tom Corbett's new Chief Information Officer, George White will lead the transformation of state's $1 billion technology enterprise. CIO White earned national attention as CIO for the PA Attorney General's office and its best in class technology enterprise.
The national perspective: Today, information technology is growing faster than the rest of the economy. Founded in 1939, The Hewlett Packard Company and its 320,000 employees operate in more than 170 countries with strong operations based in Pennsylvania. Larry Singer is Vice President of U.S. State and Local Government, Education and Public Health Care Sales (SLED), responsible for driving growth in this important segment of HP's Enterprise Business. Larry was the first CIO for the State of Georgia and first executive director of the Georgia Technology Authority, responsible for developing a statewide IT policy and strategy.
