Ben has more than 15 years of experience working with data and reporting, and has been at the University of Minnesota for the last seven years. Initially, Ben worked as an analyst and developer at the College of Continuing Education, where he and his team created an innovative online reporting solution. Ben then moved to the Office of Information Technology where, for the past five years, he has been the lead analyst on the Business Intelligence team (now Enterprise Data Management and Reporting, or EDMR). In that role, Ben has been working across the University to create a standardized vision of reporting, leveraging the University's new UM Analytics toolset. While working at the U, Ben finished his MBA from the Carlson School of Management, becoming an official University of Minnesota alumnus.
In the coming weeks, the former service owner, Joe Sullivan, will work with Ben to ensure a smooth transition. Our thanks go to Joe for his leadership with this service. Joe will continue to be an valuable member of the IT team!
Congratulations and best wishes to Ben as he takes on this new role.
