Jeffrey Devlin Named CIO of the Year in Education
PITTSBURGH, PA – The Pittsburgh Technology Council has named Carlow University’s Chief Information Officer Jeffrey Devlin, MBA, the CIO of the Year in Education.
“The recognition is solid evidence of the excellent work of the team at Carlow University. The team members have done an amazing job managing a stable and a customer-centric model,” said Devlin.
On March 5, 2015, the Pittsburgh Technology Council and the Greater Pittsburgh CIO Group co-hosted the CIO of the Year Program at Heinz Field to honor top technology executives who work in industry, non-profit, academia and government, and who use their innovation and creativity to improve our region.
Nominees, including chief information officers or those in equivalent positions, are recognized for their innovation and creativity in planning and deploying their enterprise systems, future technology goals, management philosophy and service to the industry and community.
Devlin has over 20 years of experience in the technology-academic realm. He served as the Manager of Website Services at Robert Morris University, the Library and Technology Director at Bethany College, and the Executive Director of Information Technology and Services at Zane State College before coming to Carlow University as CIO. At Carlow, Devlin has led a complete “reboot” of the technology services division in implementing a new organizational model and customer-centric service philosophy.
He recently began teaching courses at Carlow regarding information technology and security as an adjunct faculty member in the College of Leadership and Social Change. He also serves on the Board of Directors of Paddle Without Pollution, a watershed restoration and protection non-profit headquartered here in Pittsburgh, and on the Governing Board of the C-Cue Consortium, where he is past-president.
The Pittsburgh Technology Council CIO Insight Series will feature Devlin as part of a panel of CIOs to discuss challenging experiences and innovative projects. Dates for this program will be released in the coming months.
Devlin earned his bachelors degree from Saint Vincent College and received his MBA from Robert Morris University.
Devlin and his family reside in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.
