Vice President for Information Technology Kathleen Warner has announced three major appointments as part of the department's continuing reorganization.

"One of my top priorities is to hire the best and the brightest where we need specialized experience and new skills," said Warner. "We are hiring IT professionals with diverse backgrounds and proven experience - people who support the unique mission of Boston College and can help us build on the Ignatian tradition.

"The changes we are making, not only in our personnel but in our organizational structures, will enable us to work closely with faculty, staff, students and alumni to utilize 21st-century technologies that advance the legacy of Boston College," she added.

Douglas Sahs has accepted the position of director of Internet Business Programs, effective July 26. He will work with the director of Internet Business Services, as well as the department's architecture and planning groups to shift existing information technology functions to the World Wide Web.

Sahs comes to BC from Compaq Computer Corp., where he developed key strategies and architectures, including the Web site publishing process, intranet search and information repositories.
