Chuck LoCurto took the reins in January as the university’s vice president for information services and chief information officer. He held a similar position, executive vice president and chief information officer, for Textron Financial Corp.
“Over the past decade, the university has received national recognition as a leader among academic institutions in its use of information technology – not only in the classroom but campus-wide through our green ‘smarter buildings’ project,” said President Ronald K. Machtley.
“I am thrilled that Chuck, who was at the helm of a number of significant technological initiatives during his 20 years at Textron, will lead the next phase of Bryant’s information and communications technology initiatives.”
“I look forward to identifying information technology trends and strategies that will help Bryant meet its ambitious goals that will prepare its students to become leaders who make a positive difference around the globe,” said LoCurto.
