Austin, Texas-based Apogee, which manages higher education technology services, has appointed Louis ‘Lou’ Delzompo as chief technology officer.
Delzompo is responsible for developing and implementing managed technology services strategies, product development, and product management road maps and processes, including quality assurance, security, and data protection processes for Apogee and its college and university customer base.
Delzompo previously worked for eight years as chief technology officer and enterprise architect at the California Community Colleges Technology Center, the technology hub serving a large higher education system of 116 US campuses with more than two million students. Before that, he was chief technology officer at Parchment, an education provider of digital credentialing and e-transcripts for higher education and K12. Earlier, he was chief technology officer for Apple PowerSchool and also co-founded and sold a software company that developed the first secure social media and collaboration platform built for K12.
Apogee’s chief executive Scott Drossos said: “Lou’s decades of experience in working for and with the higher education sector made him the perfect CTO candidate for Apogee. I am excited to have Lou join our leadership team at such a pivotal and exciting juncture in our company’s evolution. Apogee is committed to solving higher education challenges and enriching the student experience by designing and delivering robust managed technology services to college campuses and residence halls. Lou will help us ensure that Apogee is always innovating and anticipating what’s next, while also focusing on the delivery of managed technology services and related education solutions that help campus IT teams unlock time to innovate.”
Delzompo commented: “I’m impressed with what Apogee founder Charles ‘Chuck’ Brady has done to establish Apogee as the go-to provider of managed technology services for higher education. Scott and the entire Apogee team are solid professionals who are making a positive difference in the lives of college and university students, faculty and staff who are navigating a rapidly changing environment that has been made even more challenging because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Blended learning is here to stay, and the need for digital transformation has never been greater. Technology is essential to enabling and supporting the mission of higher education.”
