Information Technology Services to welcome new executive director in January

Provost Leo Groarke has announced the appointment of Bala Kathiresan as executive director of Information Technology Services, effective January 2.

“He brings to the University a wealth of experience gained in the management of information systems in the public and private sector,” Dr. Groarke says, noting his service as executive vice-president and chief operating officer, corporate services, for Ontario’s largest multisite community teaching hospital, comprising seven sites, serving 434,000 residents across 12 municipalities in Niagara.

“I count on everyone to make him feel at home and work with him as he addresses the development and maintenance of ITS at the University of Windsor,” says Groarke.

He also expressed thanks to Sean Moriarty for his “stalwart commitment and service” while serving as an interim executive director during what turned out to be a lengthy search.
