Reporting to the Vice-President, Finance and Administration, the Chief Information Officer (CIO) is a key member of the University’s Leadership Team. The CIO takes an enterprise-wide perspective to see opportunities across departments, faculties, and businesses and, as such, plays an important role in building and leading a motivated team of technology professionals to provide exceptional IT service and solutions to the institution.

The CIO also acts as a conduit to convey how the work of their team connects to the overall needs of the university community. In light of resource and budget constraints, the CIO maintains a positive can-do attitude and is creative in delivering innovative solutions that offer the greatest potential for technology to stoke excellence in teaching and research in alignment to MRU’s academic mission.
