About our guest speaker
Chief Data Officer for the CIty of Los Angeles
Jeanne Holm, a senior technology adviser to Mayor Eric Garcetti, was recently selected as the city’s new chief data officer. Before the promotion to her new role, Holm also held two other titles with the city — deputy chief information officer and assistant general manager of the city Information Technology Agency (ITA).
Holm brings global visibility to City Hall: She’s been affiliated for almost 20 years as a symposium chair and as a fellow in the United Nations’ International Academy of Astronautics. As an “evangelist” for the U.S. General Services Administration’s Data.gov project, she led the federal government’s national and international collaboration on open data, a role in which she reported to the federal chief information officer and chief technology officer in the Executive Office of the President.
She also previously served as chief knowledge architect for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA); as an open data senior consultant for the World Bank Group; and as an adviser to the UN’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network. She is a distinguished instructor at UCLA and has been a guest lecturer at Pepperdine University.
