My name is David Evans and I have over 25 years of experience in the Information Technology arena. I started my career as a computer operator and through hard work and perserverance; I worked my way up to Chief Information Officer. Along the way, I performed just about every function in IT from DBA and Systems Programmer to Client Services and Business Analyst; I was even responsible for building Technology departments and networks from inception.
Currently I am the Head of Technology for the Ocean County Library. In this position I serve as Director of Technology for the 21 branches in Ocean County as well as the Headquarters in Toms River. My first assignment at the Library was to move the Technology Department from a Mom and Pop operation to a state of the art support and development organization while still manageing the day to day operations of the Technology Department. My mission was to transform it into the model that Libraries nationwide could follow. I can now say that my mission was accomplished. Not only has the Department been transformed but its operational budget has been decreased with no disruption to services.
Before coming to The Ocean County Library I was the Director of MIS for Vonage, a large telecommunications company in New Jersey, Chief Information Officer for an Internet Marketing and Customer Retention Company named Impower, located in Princeton and Chief Information Officer for FARO Pharmaceuticals in Bedminster, NJ. My experience also includes 16 years of tenure as Director of International MIS for Warner Lambert, a Fortune 100 Company.
