Interim CIO announcement

From Joanne DeStefano, Executive Vice President & CFO, and Michael Kotlikoff, Provost

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. David Lifka to the position of Interim CIO to replace Ted Dodds, who will be leaving Cornell on December 6. David will be serving in this capacity until we select Ted’s permanent replacement.

David has many years of experience at Cornell and in the field of Information Technology at both the Medical College and Ithaca campuses. He currently serves as the Associate CIO, where he has been instrumental in developing strategies and initiatives to enhance IT services in units, reduce IT overhead, and balance IT functionality with cost; as well providing the CIO and CIT leadership team with insights on faculty and research requirements to align current and future service offerings. 

We appreciate that David has agreed to take on this interim position, and we hope you will welcome him in his new role.
