Superior solutions that address today’s challenges in higher education require technological and analytics innovation and progressive thinking from industry practitioners.
That’s why Othot is extremely excited to announce that effective June 1, 2019, Chris Lucier, who most recently served as the Vice President of Enrollment Management at the University of Delaware, has joined its team as Director of Partner Relations, a part-time position.
“Othot is passionate about making a difference with our clients. The foundation of our ability to impact institutions is the Othot Platform – that delivers Explainable AI – and our people. Chris adds additional deep industry experience to our team where he will focus on helping our clients unlock actionable insights and put them into everyday practice,” says Andy Hannah, CEO of Othot. “Chris is a progressive thinker and a terrific person who fits our culture incredibly well. We were an extension of his team at the University of Delaware and now, in his new role he can pursue a passion he has to help ‘hundreds of schools‘ reach their goals.”
Below are some comments from Chris explaining his decision to join Othot.
“I joined the Othot team for several reasons. First, as a recent VP for Enrollment Management at a flagship institution in the competitive enrollment environment of the Northeast, I have first-hand experience with Othot’s CEO, Andy Hannah, and the talented team he has built,” Lucier commented. “I have seen the Platform in action and know the capability it possesses to support an institution’s enrollment goals. ‘Partner-centric’ is not a bumper sticker at Othot, it is real and is in the DNA of every member of the team, which is why we were able to implement so easily and see such immediate results. We received immediate ROI when we implemented the Platform.”
“Second, at UD I went through my own research and an RFP process. I am confident that the Data team that Othot has assembled is doing things well beyond the rest of the industry now, and the Product Development team will be rolling out functionality soon that will be game changing.”
“Lastly, but most important to me, as the caregiver of my spouse who has Stage IV metastatic breast cancer, the Company provides me the flexibility to make a difference with Partner Institutions and in Product Development, while knowing where my priority lies. To me, this speaks volumes about Othot.”
During his tenure at the University of Delaware, Lucier’s leadership was felt across the institution, including:
Before joining UD, Lucier led undergraduate admissions and enrollment strategy at the University of Vermont for seven years. Previously he was director of recruitment and operations in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he earlier served as senior associate director of recruitment and marketing.
