Features Chief Information Officer

Jeffrey Smith – Atlanta Technical College

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The 11 buildings on the Atlanta Technical College’s campus offer students and faculty over half a million square feet in which to study, work or simply relax. In addition to the 307,000-square-foot Academic Complex building, the campus has green spaces with park benches to enjoy a warm, breezy Georgia afternoon. Yet, these spaces aren’t at […]

Jeff Scheetz – City of Avondale, Arizona

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jeff Scheetz likes to joke that he moved from his native Colorado to Avondale, Arizona, to escape the snow. He’s done that, although it also means he left some of his favorite fishing streams behind when he became chief information officer for the city of 89,334 that’s on the western boundary of Phoenix. However, Scheetz […]

Jako van Blerk – Macomb County

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Onward it goes, the migration of on-premise case management systems to the more secure yet still accessible cloud. Time was when it might have been met with dissent by the people who administer Michigan’s Macomb County, but as Chief Information Officer Jako van Blerk assures, the process proceeds according to plan and with the support […]

John Collins – Lynchburg City Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

As festivals go, this one won’t conjure up memories of Woodstock, Live Aid or Coachella. No one gets inundated by storms causing seas of mud, no rock stars take jets to play multiple venues in a day, and the setting is south central Virginia, not the California desert. But John Collins has very high hopes […]

Jeffrey Hall – HMC Hospitality Group

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When the first Hooters restaurant opened in Clearwater, Florida, in 1983, the company branded itself as “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined.” Servers in low-cut shirts and short orange skirts served basic fare like chicken wings, burgers and beer. Nearly 40 years later, those staples remain, but behind the scenes, technology infrastructure provides modern conveniences that serve […]

Joseph Patuto – Middlesex Community College

Est. reading time: 5 mins

Credit him for foresight. It was around a quarter-century ago when Joseph R. Patuto began assembling infrastructure for off-campus learning at Middlesex Community College. The need for it was widely doubted and the faculty were often unreceptive to the ideas of this former systems engineer from Digital Equipment Corp. “To a lot of people there […]

Jean Guezmir – St. Catherine University

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Jean Guezmir’s tech career was going well and she wasn’t planning on making big changes. At Target, for instance, she drove major improvements to the supply chain and partnered to replace the retailer’s enterprise resource planning platform and software, among other tasks. Then, at St. Jude Medical, she reorganized and systematized IT services and established […]

John Jorgensen – Black Hills Energy

Est. reading time: 5 mins

He doesn’t intend to be a prophet of doom, but John Jorgensen has his concerns about critical infrastructure. He and his colleagues at Black Hills Energy take any threats seriously and encourage industry peers to do likewise. “It’s one of the hottest areas to defend,” he tells Toggle in September from headquarters in Rapid City, […]

Jill Ibeck – Jeffco Public Schools

Est. reading time: 4 mins

When Jill Ibeck joined Jeffco Public Schools in July 2021 as its chief information officer, the COVID-19 pandemic was still in full swing, and the district’s IT strategy was more reactive than proactive. Staff continued following local public health orders and struggled to bring students back into the classroom. Recently, circumstances have been shifting. “We […]

Jason O’Connell – Sensata Technologies

Est. reading time: 4 mins

Moving to Nevada a few years ago wasn’t his first choice, but now that Jason O’Connell is back in his native Massachusetts, he appreciates the time he logged as chief information security officer at Affinity Gaming in Las Vegas even more. It made for a relatively seamless transition to his role since last fall as […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
