Information Technologies (IT) invites the campus community to meet a candidate for the position of Platforms Director. The candidate, Mike Walker, has worked extensively in IT for over 20 years, most recently as the Information Services Manager for Orlando County Convention Center (OCCC) in Florida. An open forum is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 9, in the Roberts Room at Scholes Hall at 8 a.m.

His accomplishments include reducing the OCCC IT operating and capital budgets by over $20,000,000, improving systems performance approximately 50 percent annually, and demonstrating improved IT customer satisfaction ratings by over half. His work has been consistently characterized by strong leadership skills, combined with a focus on group success, technical planning and successful budget initiatives.

The UNM community is encouraged to attend and meet the candidate, ask questions regarding his plans for IT Platforms, and see how the direction of IT will affect their academic and business direction at the University.
