Retiring OIT Assistant Director Howard Grandier, with new OIT AD Joe Peters.
Howard Grandier, Assistant Director for the Office of Information Technology (OIT), retired on July 31, 2011, after 39 years with the federal government—20 of them at the Administrative Office. He leaves OIT in the very capable hands of Joe Peters, Deputy Assistant Director of OIT for the last three years, and now the new OIT Assistant Director.
“Joe has worked in close partnership with the courts to establish numerous innovative programs that have advanced the use of new technologies in the Judiciary,” said AO Director Jim Duff, “while generating cost savings, increasing efficiency, and enhancing security. Joe will continue to build on the strong working relationships he has established with IT professionals throughout the courts to keep the Judiciary in the forefront of technology and to further improve OIT’s programs and customer-service efforts.”
Peters joined the AO from the Transportation Security Administration, where he was Deputy Chief Information Officer. He has held IT management positions in the private sector and also served for more than nine years at the U.S. Secret Service.
