|Dear UAA Community,
Paulick appointed to helm UAA CIO
Adam Paulick was appointed this week as UAA’s chief information officer, taking on the position Pat Shier filled before Shier began serving as interim vice chancellor for Administrative Services when Bill Spindle left in October.
“Direct appointment was the best path forward,” Shier said, “considering the Strategic Pathways Phase 1 IT study and implementation work underway already, the demands of keeping our robust IT and communications infrastructure working reliably, and Adam’s demonstrated investment in UAA governance.”
Paulick has worked with ITS since his arrival at UAA in July 2013. In that time, he has helped improve UAA’s infrastructure and customer communications, and demonstrated his capabilities as an IT leader.
Paulick began his work as UAA’s interim CIO on Oct. 16.
Before leading a transformation of the Infrastructure Services section at UAA IT Services, he had amassed more than nine years’ experience as an IT consultant in the private sector and many years’ IT leadership and operations in the public sector, including the top spot for the State of Alaska Telecommunication System.
Paulick holds certifications in project management and information systems security, and served as interim State of Alaska CIO.
Arizona State University’s W.P. Carey School of Business awarded him a bachelor’s degree in accounting, and Paulick also has experience in budgeting and legislative reporting.
“We have an excellent IT team, and I expect the continuation of great work for our customers as we creatively deal with the budget pressures before us,” Shier said. “We wish to thank Adam and the entire IT team for the relevant, high-value, customer-focused work they accomplish for the university every day.”
