As CTO at the University of Dubuque (1997 through February 2008)

As Chief Technology Officer, I was a member of the University Administrative Cabinet and reported directly to the President.  My role was to manage and direct a staff that supported both Administrative and Academic Computing systems.  This included network infrastructure (fiber/copper, servers, switches and end-user computer, stations), software applications, data security, and remote access to information.  In addition, my staff supported on-demand computer assistance and staff development.  Along with technical support of distance learning, video conferencing, my staff also supported the campus and airport telephone systems.  This position required a working knowledge of technical aspects of information and communication systems, as well as the ability to effectively communicate strategic advantages and benefits of such systems to the organization.  Consequently, a significant part of my job was information and change management.
