We’re pleased to welcome Jeff Murray, Chief Information Officer at the University of Tasmania (UTAS), to the AARNet Board. Jeff fills the position vacated by Peter Nikoletatos (formerly CIO of Australia’s National University). We thank Peter for his invaluable contribution to AARNet and wish him all the best.
Jeff came to UTAS in March 2013 following a five year stint as CIO at Glasgow Caledonian University. Prior to Glasgow he was Director of Knowledge and Information Technology at Edith Cowan University. Previous experience was in the health, police and private sectors, primarily in IT and analytical positions.
Jeff’s experience in the United Kingdom focused on the implementation of an integrated student system, cloud hosted virtual learning systems, establishment of systems at a new London campus and an enterprise portal. At UTAS, Jeff and his team have implemented four world-leading immersive video conference suites, among other initiatives.
“AARNet has continually grown as a key and strategic asset for the Australian Higher Education sector. Its strength of leadership in the international networking community is outstanding and it is a privilege to be able to make a contribution to the further growth and development of this exciting organisation.”
