Andy Roos—Chief Information Officer
Andy joined Audubon part time in December 2010 to use his application and database expertise to revive Millennium, Audubon's donor database. Moving to full time in February of 2011, he focused his efforts on completing the Millennium fix and instituting a suite of self-serve reports. As the Director of Database services, he led the migration of all of Audubon's applications from antiquated and uncoordinated technology to stable and manageable platforms. Migration of the Christmas Bird Count application in 2011-12 was part of this endeavor. He also spearheaded the effort to move all fundraising gift data from Convio and PCD into Millennium. In 2012 he took on oversight of all network and support staff, and in July 2012 he was promoted to the position of Chief Information Officer.
In a past life, Andy was an educator working on the secondary level as a mathematics, computer science and English Teacher. After 15 years, a career change brought him into the world of Information Technology. Since then he has served in a variety of roles for a number of organizations, including manager, director, VP and CIO of several organizations over the past 5 years. The organizations covered the gamut of industries including American Express, Deutsche Bank, Merck Pharmaceuticals as a Consultant and several insurance companies as Senior IT Management. His broad experience and expertise span project management, database development, architecture and administration, application development and design, IT network architecture, IT support management, and administration. Andy specializes in the rehabilitation of IT departments and has been working closely with Phil Lambert in advancing that goal at Audubon.
