Justin joined the MOR team in 2018 following a twenty-four year career working in higher education IT. For the last eighteen years Justin served as the senior most IT executive at SUNY Potsdam, Skidmore College, and most recently Vice President at St Lawrence University where he lead the integration of the IT and Library organizations into a single division.
Justin is passionate about leadership development within the profession having served as both a faculty member and as the faculty Director of the EDUCAUSE Management Institute. He believes that successful leadership within the higher education IT community is more critical now than ever as technology is impacting every aspect of the academy. Given the pace of change, always expanding expectations, and daunting security and privacy concerns; leadership is needed not just from the CIO but at all levels of the organization. His leadership journey included numerous opportunities to help organizations enhance their value to the institution and evolve in ways necessary for continued relevance and success.

Justin currently is on the Board of Directors for NYSERNet.org and recently has served on the Board of Directors for EDUCAUSE and ConnectNY. He was a member of the Advisory Board for the Center for Higher Education CIO Studies, the Microsoft Higher Education Advisory Group (HEAG), and played a founding role in the formation of the SUNY Council of CIOs that he also chaired for two years. Previously Justin has served on the Seminars on Academic Computing (SAC) Board of Directors and Program Committee, the 2007 EDUCAUSE National Conference Program Committee, and co-host of the NY State Conference for Higher Education CIO's.
