Scott Blumenreich

Chief Innovation and Technology Officer

City of Centennial, Colorado

Mr. Scott Blumenreich is the Chief Innovation and Technology Officer for the City of Centennial, Colorado.  Mr. Blumenreich joined Centennial in 2015 to design, build, and lead an Innovation Team (i-team) funded through a 3-year grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies focused on embedding innovation in government. In conjunction with launching the Innovation Team, he architected the City’s first enterprise class IT department, leading to the formation of the Office of Technology and Innovation.

Prior to Centennial and his time as an executive technology consultant, Blumenreich was the Deputy Chief Information Officer of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), where he led the Information Systems Office (ISO) strategic and tactical planning efforts during an expansive period of growth, delivering institution-wide IT services for Scientific Research, Business and Operational Systems supporting national efforts toward developing a new ‘Green Energy Economy’. While with Sandoz, Inc., the generics division of Novartis Pharmaceuticals, he led international efforts to standardize computing platforms, Information security systems, lab automation and quality standards conforming to both US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMEA) guidelines for both North and South America.

In the course of his multi-faceted career, which began as a grant-based research biochemist, Mr. Blumenreich has served in executive and consultative technology roles both nationally and internationally. Having transitioned early in his professional life to lead technology transformation efforts in the Pharma and Biotech industries, Blumenreich’s personal maxim for leaders in both the public and private sectors is to, “Create with Compassion…Disrupt with Discretion”.

Mr. Blumenreich holds an M.S. Degree in Information Systems from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and emphasis in Genetics from Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado.  Most importantly, he clears his mind by playing the drums with musician friends and his favorite Prog Rock bands.
