StateScoop 50 award for Nikhil Deshpande

Nikhil Deshpande is among the winners of the StateScoop 50 Awards, which honor influential people in the state government community and the most innovative projects that advance services and solutions for residents. Deshpande, who received the award for State Leadership of the Year, has served as Georgia’s chief digital office for several years. He has played key roles in establishing Georgia’s social media presence and in leading the move to an enterprisewide open-source publishing system. He envisioned and led Georgia’s user-centric digital transition to an enterprise-wide open-source web publishing system, GovHub. Under his direction, Georgia became the first U.S. state to use enterprise Drupal and meet the special needs of constituents with disabilities. Previously, he was on Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under 40” list.
