Kathy Kral has been appointed Chief Information Officer at the
University of West Georgia, the university announced.
Kral has over 17 years of technical and managerial experience in the IT field.
She has served as interim CIO since January 2008.
During her tenure as interim CIO, Information Technology Services has led UWG
through a comprehensive audit by the University System Office, and has helped improve
the university’s performance to an overall "Good" rating. The university’s ITS
department has also collected data from over 2,700 service calls on each of six
dimensions of service, and has averaged a rating of approximately 9.7 on overall service,
and a rating of 9.75 on all six dimensions combined.
While the credit for these outstanding improvements belongs to the entire ITS team,
special acknowledgement is due for Kral’s outstanding leadership, said Dr. Beheruz N.
Sethna, president of UWG.
“UWG would like to wish Kral the best in her new position,” Sethna said.
