Our good friend and colleague Wesley Matthews, director of Enterprise Systems, has chosen to take his career in a new direction. He will leave IIT in early March and relocate this fall to Santiago, Chile to join Corp Group one of the largest holding companies in Latin America. OTS wishes Wesley continued success as he pursues his future career goals.
Wesley joined IIT in 2005 and has made significant contributions to the university’s technology environment. He was instrumental in creating the myIIT portal and participated as a team leader on the b@iit project. He also directed the development of the IIT scholarship matching program and helped bring Google to IIT.
With Wesley’s departure, OTS has reorganized Enterprise Systems into three areas: Emerging Technologies led by Scott Spyrison, Business Process Support led by John McGivney and Database Management led by Zhanxu (Jesse) Duan, Ph.D. All will report to Jim Meyer, AVP of Project Management and Application Systems.
Wesley collaborated with many students, faculty and staff across all university campuses and he will be missed. A farewell reception will take place in a few weeks on Main Campus. Watch IIT Today for more details.
