Gerhart named CIO

TIFTON — Robert Gerhart has been named Chief Information Officer at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, according to an announcement by ABAC President David Bridges.

“I am excited about the experience and innovative ideas Robert will bring to ABAC,” Bridges said. “His outgoing personality and drive to get the job done will result in needed advancements to campus technology.”

Gerhart comes to ABAC from the Georgia Institute of Technology where he has served as the Special Projects Director in the office of the CIO since 2012. Prior to this position he served as Director of Information Technology in the College of Architecture at Georgia Tech since 1999. From 2009 until 2012 he assumed the additional responsibilities of managing facilities for the College of Architecture. During his 15-year tenure at Georgia Tech, Gerhart has been responsible for identifying and fulfilling all technology needs that support education, instruction, research and business operations.

He has seen and adapted to rapid technological changes while at Georgia Tech and is excited to do the same at ABAC.

“It is inspiring to see what students accomplish when they combine their creative imagination with a little technical knowledge. I feel fortunate to be able to contribute to that process. I see my role as the Chief Technology Officer at ABAC as an enabler, “Gerhart said. “My goal as CTO will be to assist students along with the faculty and staff that support them with the technical tools and resources they need to succeed not only while they are at ABAC, but also in preparation for their chosen careers.”

Gerhart received a BA in Sociology from Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. and earned his Master of Science degree in Building Construction and Integrated Facilities Management from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2009.

Gerhart will begin work at ABAC on May 1.
