Chief Information Officer
“I have always placed tremendous value on giving the people I work with and the customers I support the opportunity to learn. It’s one of the best gifts you can give someone. As PSI’s CIO, my goal is to serve as an example and a mentor and to create and foster an environment where there is no limit to an employee’s technical capabilities. Their only limitation is their own motivation to attain their most aspirational professional goals.” – Andy Acuna, CIO of PSI
Mr. Andy Acuna is Chief Information Officer (CIO) of Planned Systems International, Inc. (PSI), a certified enterprise IT solutions provider specializing in Federal Health IT. As CIO, Mr. Acuna leads and oversees the vision, strategy, and operation of the company’s Technology Management Department, where PSI is a leader in providing enterprise technology and cyber solutions that drive innovation and operational excellence for our customers. Mr. Acuna began his career at the Scientific Visualization Studio at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, where he taught himself HTML and scripting languages to support scientific project teams requiring websites when the internet was in its infancy.

When he’s not at work? Mr. Acuna enjoys spending time with his family and taking trips to the Outer Banks of North Carolina or Ocean Pines in Maryland. When time allows, he also pursues photography, kayaking, cooking on his Big Green Egg, and other nerdy endeavors such as fossiling for shark teeth along the Potomac River.
