Robinson, Brown Named Deputy CIOs at U Maryland

The Division of Information Technology at the University of Maryland has named two new deputy CIOs.

Michael Brown, who was previously assistant vice president of solutions development at University of Maryland University College, was named deputy CIO of enterprise software engineering. According to information released by UMD, Brown came to the position with 20 years of IT leadership and software and systems engineering experience inside and outside of education, including Claritas, Systems Research and Applications Corp., Universal Systems, and Mobil Oil Corp.

Alison Robinson was named deputy CIO of support and enablement. Most recently a consultant for CARE Management Solutions, Robinson was for six years an IT director at the University of South Florida, where she held three titles: director of application services, IT director for the College of Education, and director of support services for the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health. Before that, she was a technology director at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for seven years.

“Michael and Alison join Tripti Sinha and Fran LoPresti as executive leaders (Deputy CIOs) in the Division of IT and, along with other leadership and staff, will help the division work with the university community to provide an excellent and abundant IT infrastructure and service environment to University of Maryland students, faculty, and staff,” said Brian D. Voss, UMD vice president of information technology and CIO, in a prepared statement. “We are looking forward to the coming year, in which we will complete the community-driven IT strategic planning process and move forward in enabling innovation across the broad missions of the university.”

The University of Maryland is a public research institution serving about 27,000 full- and part-time undergraduates and 10,000 full- and part-time graduate students in 13 schools and colleges.
