I would like you to join me in welcoming a new staff member to LIS. Laura Krahn began working in LIS on January 20th as one of the new Managers of Administrative Systems and Web Development within Enterprise Applications.
Laura brings to LIS 15+ years of experience as an Information Technology professional where she has focused on enterprise applications, commercial product development, and custom software. Prior to her new position at Middlebury College Laura worked with Competitive Computing (aka C2) in Colchester, Vermont where she held the position as Enterprise Project Manager. We are excited to have Laura’s extensive experience as an IT Project Manager, Web Applications Developer, and Senior Systems Administrator added to the assets of our team.
As part of welcoming Laura to LIS I would also like to announce a recent organizational change we have made in Enterprise Applications. As you know the Web Development team had been reporting on an interim basis to Chris Norris for the past year. As of February 1st the Web Development Team has been transitioned back into the Enterprise Applications area.
In the new organizational structure both the Administrative Systems Team and Web Development Team will be reporting to a joint management team comprised of Laura Krahn and Charlotte Pratt. Charlotte has been a Senior Programmer Analyst with LIS since April 2013. As of early this year, Charlotte was promoted to the position of Manager of Administrative Systems and Web Applications.
Together Laura and Charlotte will form a joint management team responsible for all aspects of Administrative Systems and Web Development. Laura will focus on project management and customer relationship management while working with our client base both outside and inside LIS. Charlotte’s focus will be directed at improving our technical infrastructure and applications frameworks while working closely with the developers in Enterprise Applications to improve our development processes and systems across the enterprise.
Please join me in welcoming both Laura and Charlotte to their new positions within LIS.
Woohoo! Welcome aboard, Laura!
David, Don’t forget to take advantage of the orientation checklist for new lis staff (http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/technology/lis/about/orientation) to show Laura the ropes. If you find anything that needs updating along the way, let me know. And Laura, the checklist is found under “About LIS” on the main LIS page in case you want to take a peek.
