Chief Administrative Officer Beth Anderson to Begin CEO Position at Vermont Information Technology Leaders, Inc.

Burlington, VT – Today, Vermont Information Technology Leaders, Inc. (VITL) announced the appointment of Beth Anderson as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. During her four-and-a-half years with the City of Burlington, Beth served as the City’s first Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) and as the first woman Chief Administrative Officer (CAO).

As CIO, Beth implemented the City’s BTVStat initiative, working with all City departments to collect data to identify challenges, track progress, and control costs, and to promote accountability, learning, and collaboration. As CAO, Beth led two successful budget processes, which resulted in City budgets that continued historic investment in City assets while limiting taxpayer burdens. Her work to build back the City’s Unassigned Fund Balance, secure clean audits, and set new debt and pension policies played a major role in restoring the City’s Aa3 credit rating.

“I am very grateful for Beth’s dedicated and effective service to the City,” said Mayor Weinberger. “She has been a huge part of some of the City’s most significant recent successes, restoring our financial standing and broadly improving municipal operations through data analysis and the hard work of continuous improvement. We will miss Beth in City Hall and wish her the best in her exciting new role.”

Beth will continue serving as CAO through the month of November.
