GoldenGov: City Executive of the Year

Bianca Lochner is the chief information officer for Scottsdale, Arizona. Lochner has laid the foundations required to implement the city’s official smart cities roadmap. This process required a rapid assessment of the city’s existing infrastructure and, in turn, identifying technology solutions that will meet community needs by prioritizing the right initiatives to accelerate the deployment of those solutions, and rolling out processes that will ensure high-trust outcomes for the city residents. Through a series of newly established public-private partnerships, Lochner developed a pilot program to leverage and expand the city’s existing wayfinding and city data infrastructure to support the massive demand for information and connectivity from the annual influx of more than 11 million visitors to the city.
