Brice Bible, formerly the chief information officer at Ohio University, has been named vice president and chief information officer at the University at Buffalo.
Bible's hiring is effective Nov. 18.
“Brice Bible has distinguished himself as an experienced and forward-thinking executive in the area of information technology,” said UB President Satish K. Tripathi. “I am confident that he will lead our entire range of IT systems in the continuing direction of a sustainable, secure and service-focused organization that advances UB’s strategic vision."
According to UB's release, Bible was responsible for the "formation of a service-focused organizational model, establishment of a multi-faceted governance approach, creation and implementation of a comprehensive IT improvement and modernization program, and collaborative creation of an enterprise-wide IT alignment program that included central and distributed IT services."
Brice spent more than six years in Athens as CIO after holding the same position at the University of Tennessee.
"I'm very excited to join the team at the University at Buffalo,” said Bible. “The UB 2020 plan and President Tripathi's leadership make this one of the best CIO opportunities in the U.S.
“I am looking forward to meeting the faculty, students and IT team to get started building upon the great technology foundation already in place."
