IT Executive Transitions Underway

The University of Ottawa has named Sylvain Chalut as its new chief information officer. Chalut, who was most recently director of Business Relations Management with Bombardier Aéronautique's information systems services, will provide "strategic leadership for IT across the university by ensuring business alignment, performance management and investment management."

Meanwhile, the University of Arizona named Michele Norin, the executive director of its IT services department, as interim chief information officer. She will cover both roles until a full-time CIO is named, the university said.

Two institutions are seeking new CIOs. North Georgia College and State University is currently seeking applicants for the full-time position in its Department of Information & Instructional Technology (IIT). In addition to a CIO's traditional duties, the CIO will serve as the university's senior spokesperson on issues related to administrative, student support, clinical, and academic information systems, and will be member of the president's executive cabinet.

North Carolina State University is also looking for IT talent, formally a vice chancellor of information technology. The position is a new one, and the person who is hired will also serve as NCSU's chief information officer. NCSU also plans to consolidate its IT infrastructure.

Also, California State University, San Bernardino has named Spencer Freund as its new vice president for information resources and technology and chief information officer. Freund was at Sacramento State University, where he was associate vice president for technology and planning.
