Dear Trinity Faculty and Staff,
I am pleased to announce the appointment of James (Jim) Bradley as Chief Information Officer. Jim has more than 30 years’ experience as a strategic technology leader in higher education and also brings insight into the corporate world. At Trinity, he will lead the University’s ongoing commitment to support and promote the strategic use of information technology that advances our mission. Specifically he will provide leadership and management for the Information Technology Services division, including academic technology, administrative computing, networking services, user support services, the help desk, and telecommunications.
Jim is most recently a solutions delivery leader with H-E-B, where he led an international team that delivers store technology solutions for almost 400 stores in the United States and Mexico. Previously he was vice president for information technology and chief information officer at the University of Texas at Arlington. He has also served in IT leadership roles at Tulane University and the University of Houston.
He holds a Doctor of Jurisprudence from South Texas College of Law (Houston), earned an MBA in Management Information Systems from the University of St. Thomas (Houston), and received his bachelor of arts in history from the University of Houston.
A national search brought forward more than 100 applicants. Jim’s qualifications and experience stood out as the ideal selection for Trinity’s first dedicated Chief Information Officer. During his campus visit, he demonstrated that he was a strong communicator about the strategic importance of information technology for both the academic mission and for developing efficient business practices. He brings a passion for effective administration, customer service, and ongoing employee development that will benefit Trinity as we strive to achieve ever greater stature as a University of the first order.
I am delighted that he is available to begin almost immediately with a start date of Monday, August 28. Please join me in welcoming Jim to the Trinity community.
