Barry Brummund Appointed as Chief Information Officer

Karen Williams, Vice President for Information Strategy and University Libraries
April 2, 2018

It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Barry Brummund as Chief Information Officer (CIO), effective Monday, April 2, 2018.

In his new role, Barry will provide visionary leadership and strategic planning for information technology (IT) across the institution and will ensure operational excellence of University Information Technology Services (UITS). Barry will work to advance cutting-edge information technology, evaluate trends, prioritize investment opportunities, and collaborate with university leadership to leverage IT in new ways that support the University's strategic plan. He will also assume management of the UITS executive leadership team and day-to-day business operations, reporting directly to me.   

Barry has over 20 years of experience consulting with universities across the country, including leadership roles during Enterprise Resource Planning implementations at Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, and the University of Arizona. From 2008-2012, Barry served as a key contributor on the Mosaic Project, a five-year, $80 million upgrade to administrative systems at the University of Arizona and implementation of a new business intelligence system. In 2013, Barry served as our Deputy CIO. Barry was most recently Assistant Vice President, Financial Planning and Analysis, where he worked closely with IT, leading the implementation of the UA's new planning system (Adaptive Planning) and developing a new financial structure for UITS.

Information strategy and IT are becoming increasingly critical to the university's strategic mission. We are very fortunate to have someone with Barry's experience and leadership stepping into this role and I look forward to working with him to advance IT at the University of Arizona.

Please join me in congratulating Barry on his new position.
