Illinois Chief Information Officer Ron Guerrier stepped down Friday after 18 months with the state government, Gov. J.B. Pritzker said.

In a string of tweets, Pritzker, who appointed Guerrier as his CIO and secretary of the Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology shortly after his January 2019 inauguration, said Guerrier had received a job offer from another, unnamed organization.
