Gerry McCartney has served as Purdue University's chief information officer since July 2007.
Under McCartney's leadership, Purdue has developed the nation's largest cyberinfrastructure for research, with three supercomputers listed in the internationally known Top 500 list. Also during his tenure, Purdue has developed some of the nation's most advanced learning and classroom technologies, including Signals and Hotseat. In addition, in 2010 McCartney provided oversight to a campus-wide restructuring of the information technology resources used by the nearly 15,000 faculty and staff on campus.
