The City University of New York (CUNY) has appointed Eusebio Formoso as the university’s new vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer (CIO).


Formoso will lead the team overseeing the broad information systems and cybersecurity needs of CUNY and its 25 colleges.


“I am thrilled to be joining the CUNY team and to have the opportunity to contribute to the largest urban university in the country,” said Formoso in a press release. “I am looking forward to partnering with all CUNY information technology professionals to advance CUNY’s vital mission and its ambitious strategic objectives. I am grateful to Chancellor Matos Rodríguez and the Board of Trustees for giving me the opportunity to serve the CUNY community.”


Formoso brings more than 20 years of IT leadership experience to his new role at CUNY. His background encompasses strategic leadership, execution of complex programs, and managing transformative change across enterprises.


In his most recent role as CIO for the NYC Finance Department, Formoso oversaw the modernization of systems that annually administer approximately $45 billion in city business and property tax revenues.


Before he joined the NYC Finance Department in 2015, Formoso was with IBM Global Services, where he managed complex IT services contracts for firms such as Konica Business Systems, PepsiCo, Phillip Morris, and Terminix/TruGreen.
