It is with mixed feelings that I write to tell you about the departure of Chad Holden from the ACT team. Luckily, however, Chad remains with the University as the new Lead Systems and Support Administrator in the Division of the Vice-President and Provost.
Chad started at the University in 2001 as the Manager of Art Direction in the Faculty of Physical Education and Health. In 2005 he joined the Shared Services Strategic Computing team as a Senior Web Analyst.
In that role, Chad also provided leadership for the University-wide collaborative Web Working Group, as well as the Accessibility Group for the Provost’s group of websites, where he wrote the original web accessibility guidelines for U of T.
Through a series of reorganizations in ITS, Chad became a member of the Web Services team within Integrated Client Services, and then part of Academic & Collaborative Technologies.
His return to the Provost’s portfolio is a return home in some ways.
Outside of work, Chad, who is a formally trained graphic designer, has several hobbies and a young family that keeps him hopping.
Our best wishes to Chad on this new opportunity.
