SSOE is proud to welcome William “Bill” Case as Director of Computer & Information Systems (C&IS). He will succeed SSOE’s current Director of C&IS, Ken Hanson, who is scheduled to retire at the official start of SSOE’s performance year, October 1, 2010.
Case has over 12 years of experience as an IT Leader, 10 of those in the A/E/C industry. He comes to SSOE from Peter Basso Associates, Inc., a Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) engineering firm located in Troy, Michigan. There he served as a Principal and Director of Technical Support Services. Prior to Peter Basso Associates, Case worked as Director of Information Technology for DeMattia Group, a design-build firm located in Plymouth, Michigan.
Tony Damon, President and CEO of SSOE states “SSOE is very excited to have found an outstanding leader in the IT/IS field to succeed Ken Hanson. Ken and I are both very enthusiastic about Bill’s commitment to help build the Information Technology and Information Systems infrastructure that will support SSOE’s domestic and international growth in the coming years.”
Case recently received his Masters of Science in Information Assurance from Walsh College, Troy, Michigan. For his Capstone Project, he authored a thesis which describes risks organizations face from the use of Social Networking sites–use by employees, clients, and competitors. In this thesis, he makes the reader aware of the various risks, and offers suggestions and starting points for mitigating them. In addition, he includes several sample social networking policies and a list of useful websites for further research.
Case received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Michigan, Dearborn, Michigan.
