An information technology (IT) administrator at TRU has garnered industry recognition.
Brian Mackay, TRU’s associate vice-president of IT services, has been selected as a top chief information officer in Info-Tech Research Group’s CIO annual awards.
The winners were determined through Business Vision, an information technology (IT) stakeholder satisfaction survey that helps CIOs understand the needs of their key business stakeholders.
The awards recognize CIOs who receive the highest satisfaction scores on Business Vision. CIO Business Vision is a powerful tool that formalizes IT feedback, helps kick start IT strategy and delivers a standard to measure great CIOs.
“TRU IT Services is working to better engage faculty with the effective use of technologies, improve the student experience by implementing more systems of engagement and work with all stakeholders to build and implement a digital strategy,” Mackay said.
He was selected for achieving a 20th-place ranking on Business Vision, in the 90th percentile among all participating CIOs.
The chief information officer at TRU for the past twelve years, Mackay has over 25 years of IT leadership experience in both the public and private sectors. He is also the board chair of BCNET, B.C.’s higher education shared IT services society and is on the board of CUCCIO, the Canadian University Council of Chief Information Officers.
