Features October 2020

Angela Neria – Pittsburg State University

Angela Neria first arrived on the Pittsburg State University campus as a freshman from a small town in Missouri. Crossing the Kansas border to continue her education, she cultivated interests in technology and business and met her husband, all while earning three degrees. Now, as the university’s CIO, she hopes to help other students have […]

Bryan Bishop – Pyrotecnico

The Kings of Leon are playing to a full house—actually, it’s a full field. The night is getting chilly, but as the bottles are passed and the red Solo cups are filled, the crowd’s warmth spreads like the wail of the fiddle. As the band reaches its crescendo, the night sky behind the stage platform […]

Christine Kurth – Ohio Dominican University

Christine Kurth is hardly the first person heading up an IT department in higher education who knows she needs to use what’s on hand before adding anything new. But as CIO at Ohio Dominican University, she’s cheerfully made an art and a science of ensuring technology is used to its full potential. This approach became […]

Christopher Davis – Mspark

It wasn’t nicknamed “The Wish Book” for nothing. That baseball mitt, baby doll or BB gun were on the pages to see and yearn for. So were the shoes parents could get for children attending school and the china they could use for Sunday dinners. What began in 1888 as a printed mailer offering jewelry […]

Danny Miller – Texas A&M University System/Texas Division of Emergency Management

COVID-19 threatens more than one’s physical health. There’s also a virtual risk from opportunistic online viruses—some of which seem tailor-made to exploit the current crisis. So says Texas A&M CISO Danny Miller, whose responsibilities have covered the 11-school Texas A&M University System and eight state agencies since 2014. In 2019 he added another title to […]

Dennis Hammarquist – FMS Inc.

Few industries are regulated as much as the collections industry, but that’s not just a legal problem for those in the fast-paced industry—it’s also a technology problem—and one with more levels than being efficient. Privacy and security are also growing concerns. They’re challenges Dennis Hammarquist is tackling as co-owner and CIO for Oklahoma-based FMS, a […]

Devin Shirley – Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield

When it comes to data security, the buck’s got to stop somewhere. At Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, it stops with Devin Shirley. “As technologies change, so do the bad guys,” explains Shirley, since 2016 the chief information security officer for Arkansas’ biggest insurer. “You can never depend on the system you have today. […]

Donna Ross – Radian Group Inc.

It’s a three-legged stool, she says. People, processes and technology being the three essential ingredients that comprise data security at Radian Group Inc., a Philadelphia firm that manages risk and provides services for the mortgage and real estate industries. Seems unusual that Donna Ross would list technology last. Especially since it’s what differentiates a chief […]

Gary Jeter – Firefly Federal Credit Union

It may not be a deal Gary Jeter was born to make, but it’s one he’s equipped to steer after his years of military and civilian training and education. The merger between Firefly Credit Union and TruStone Financial Credit Union was not a done deal when Jeter, Firefly’s senior vice president and chief technology officer, […]

Greg Brandenburg – University of Mary Hardin-Baylor

Greg Brandenburg knows what can happen to a university campus in Texas. In a state prone to hurricanes, tornados and extreme heat, he’s had to plan for flooding, power outages and quick evacuations. Still, compared to these events, he says COVID-19—which hit two months after he became the vice president for technology and CIO at […]

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
