Golding announces Brice Bible taking job at Buffalo

In a message send Oct. 10 to University faculty and staff, Vice President for Finance and Administration Stephen Golding announced Chief Information Officer Brice Bible would be leaving in November for a new position at the University of Buffalo.

Dear Colleagues,

It is with mixed feelings that I inform you that Brice Bible, Chief Information Officer of Ohio University, has accepted a new position as vice president and chief information officer at University at Buffalo, the State University of New York.  Brice will assume this new role on Nov. 18.  We will miss Brice, but we are pleased for his success and wish him well in Buffalo.  

As you may know, Brice’s most recent assignment was on a very important shared services Research Portal project with the Ohio Board of Regents (OBR).  Ohio University remains committed to the success of this project and to continuing our work in support of the OBR.

Brice was recruited to OHIO in 2007 to address a number of serious IT issues, to include the rollout of NextGen network systems and capabilities, data security, Student Information System (SIS) issues, and others. In the six and a half years of his tenure he consistently delivered— so much so that in 2012 Ohio University was ranked the sixth most connected college in the world—and most connected in Ohio-- by U.S. News and World Report.

With Brice’s planned departure, effective Nov. 17, Assistant CIO for Infrastructure Duane Starkey, who assumed day-to-day responsibility for the Office of Information Technology on July 22, will take on the role of Interim Chief Information Officer until a search can be conducted.  Duane will continue to report to Joe Lalley, Senior Associate Vice President for Information Technologies and Administrative Services.  OIT has two strong leaders in these individuals and is in good hands. We will continue to assess leadership structure going forward as we better understand the new IT governance model and RCM implementation.

Please join me in congratulating Brice on his new opportunity.

Best regards,

Stephen T. Golding
