Support Services

Sr. Director of Support Services - Joe Ader

Support Services supports incoming needs of customers and ensures the health and dependability of our systems. This team consists of the Help Desk, Tier 2, and Operations/Maintenance. The Help Desk is the initial contact point for routine questions and inquiries.


Sr. Director of Partnership - Mary Reiman

Partnership provides portfolio and project management services as well as account managers who provide general consulting to constituents and gather business and functional requirements. This team is the initial point-of-contact for initiatives beyond routine Help Desk matters. Account managers will serve as your liaison with IT, translating business needs to the technology team. The Partnership team looks forward to enhancing their understanding of the challenges you face and collaborating with you on productive solutions.

Technology Development

Sr. Director of Technology Development - Currently Vacant

Technology Development works with the Partnership team to design and build processes, software, and hardware to meet business and academic requirements. This includes all Butler IT applications, services, infrastructure, and mobile apps. The composition of this team reflects the increasingly cross-platform nature of most new systems. This team is responsible for a wide range of technologies, but many day-to-day operational & constituent tasks are handled by the other two teams to allow this group to be more "heads down" for large projects.
