ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Administrative shuffling at the University of New Mexico has claimed its first casualty.
The Journal learned UNM officials told IT employees Tuesday morning that Gil Gonzales is no longer chief information officer for the school and that they’ll be seeking an interim director. Executive vice president David Harris confirmed the move via email.
“UNM is moving the IT department in a direction that differs in size, in scope from the current structure, which requires new leadership,” Harris said.
Gonzales’ contract will not be renewed at the end of the year, but he will remain on staff until then with a salary of $196,700. It wasn’t clear if the new IT department would be smaller or larger than the current one.
