The City of Round Rock has selected Ramsey Saad to be the organization’s Chief Information Officer, replacing Heath Douglas, who recently retired from the position after 22 years of service.
Saad has served the City for 14 years. Starting his career in the Geographic Information Systems group, he branched out to other IT services in the roles of System Administrator and Application/Web Developer. In 2015, Saad was promoted to Assistant Director of Information Technology and was responsible for leading the Information Technology Department’s operations and strategic initiatives as the City has continued to evolve.
“Ramsey has led several organization-wide initiatives over the years to harness new technology so we can provide exceptional service to the citizens of Round Rock,” said City Manager Laurie Hadley. “His knowledge of the City, dedication and loyalty to Round Rock will serve this community well for years to come.”
Saad holds a Bachelor’s degree in Geographic Information Science from Texas State University. He began his new position in June and has named Megan Tschoerner, who has 16 years of experience with the City, as his successor for the role of Assistant Director of Information Technology.
“Information Technology affects all aspects of our local government, and I’m excited to work in a new capacity to continue enhancing and modernizing the operations of our organization,” Saad said. “From public safety to the library, we’re working on several exciting projects to improve the experience for our citizens, business community and visitors.”
