BICSI’s board of directors announced on November 4 that the association selected John H. Daniels as its new executive director and chief executive officer. Daniels will assume the new role on January 1, 2020.
Daniels currently serves as global vice president in the analytics department of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), which is an association with more than 80,000 members and 650 corporate organizations. At HIMSS, Daniels has provided global strategic leadership to a number of initiatives, with offices in Germany, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States, BICSI said when announcing Daniels as its next top executive. “He was selected given his track record of success in building and leading collaborative teams that have driven meaningful growth and engagement for the organizations he has served,” BICSI said. He joined HIMSS in 2010 and previously was chief information officer at Evolvent Technologies as well as having served a 20-year career in the United States Air Force. “BICSI is advancing the ICT community by helping thousands of ICT professionals and companies around the world deliver the highest-quality products and services in virtually every industry, and I couldn’t be more honored to be chosen as its next CEO,” Daniels said. “In collaboration with the board, staff members and other stakeholders, we must seize the tremendous opportunities ahead to focus on bringing a positive, meaningful impact to global digital transformation. I look forward to serving the BICSI family and helping to enable its leaders and members to achieve their full potential on this exciting journey.”
“On behalf of the BICSI board of directors, I would like to commend the executive director/CEO search committee [EDSC] for their substantial contributions this year, starting with the excellent leadership of EDSC chair and BICSI President-Elect Todd Taylor, and committee members BICSI Past President O.

“BICSI and the ICT industry is approaching a time of growth and opportunity,” added Taylor. “With these changes, it is important that BICSI continues to increase its foothold as the leader in education and certification while keeping a strong focus on increasing membership value. Daniels brings a depth of knowledge and practical experience that will help take BICSI to the next level as well as broaden its partnerships with other associations. His international experience will help expand BICSI’s strong position in the global market, and I have confidence that he will lead us to success.”
