Kirk Nugent will be a nationa brand!
It has been my pleasure to work with Kirk for the last 18 months in his capacity as CIO for Oakwood University. I found Kirk to display great leadership skills as he sought to balance the needs of his diverse constituency’s (staff, faculty and most of all students) while seeking to revamp the technology platforms at his institution. Kirk has built a principle centered and inclusive culture among his staff where input on major decisions is welcomed and positive outcomes on projects is expected.
I’ve worked with Kirk over the past few months, and its been an absolute pleasure getting to know him. He’s bright and innovative, wanting and expecting the best for his team and for the institution he serves.
Kirk showed great skill in listening to customers explain their issues troubleshooting problems… had a positive attitude while working, getting along well with campus customers, and had good technical skills. I would recommend him to anyone needing an honest, reliable person working in a technical position. If opportunity presented, I would hire him again.
…I worked closely with Kirk to implement many projects at Oakwood where he lead the Technology Division providing representation on Presidents Council. He has exceptional work ethics and has shown to be a visionary leader who is a very organised individual with flexibility to go beyond his responsibilities. I am very confident in his abilities and highly recommend him without reservation…
…he made immense contributions in multiple areas that have remained a source of inspiration, motivation, and with direct results. We remain grateful for his Technology Leadership contributions to improve IT Service delivery in Africa.
