President Mark Schlissel announced the appointment of Ravi Pendse as vice president for information technology and chief information officer.
The five-year appointment was unanimously approved Thursday by the board of regents.
Pendse will begin Aug. 1. Andrew Rosenberg will remain as the interim leader until then and assist with the transition before returning to devote his full attention to his position as chief information officer in Michigan Medicine.
“Dr. Pendse has extensive experience as a successful and collaborative university leader. He understands the complex technological needs of a comprehensive university, having worked in higher education as a researcher, teacher and adviser to students,” Schlissel said.
