With each ending comes a new beginning.
I have had the honor and privilege of being the CEO of Eve University for 4 years, Director of Operations for 6 months before that, and a Director since 2008. During that time, I’ve seen numerous changes within the University, and it is time for me to make one more.
Effective March 15th, I will be stepping down as CEO. The choice of successor is the most important choice any leader can make, and I make this one without the least hesitation. Laura Karpinski, our current Director of Operations, will be taking her logical place as CEO of Eve University. Laura has been an invaluable asset to the University and myself, stepping in last summer when real life interfered with my ability to be involved to the same degree that I had been previously.
She has been a personnel officer, personnel manager, Director of Human Relations, Director of Operations, and a genuinely decent and caring person during her time in EVE University and I have no doubt she will continue her tradition of excellence as CEO.
As for myself, I will still be around and participating to assist Laura in any capacity she needs. EVE University has been my home for almost a decade, and I cannot see myself leaving anytime soon, just finding a new manner in which to assist and balance game and life.
During the time I have had the honor to be CEO of EVE University, I hope that I have been a positive force. I’ve changed aspects of the University, but also made my share of mistakes. All I can say is that I hope that my time will be remembered fondly, and step down with the comforting knowledge that Laura will greatly surpass any humble achievements I had.
So many of you have helped me over the years that I cannot begin to thank all of you by name. Just know that you have been there when I needed help, offered levity when I was too serious, and been trusted friends and compatriots. Thank you to everyone I have had the pleasure of interacting with over my time as CEO.
