John is a man with a few fishing stories!

John Ellis was announced this week as the new Interim Deputy CIO for LITS. John came to Emory in November 2003 as co-director of Academic Technologies and has since held multiple leadership positions, most recently serving as Director of Integration. In that role he directed IT Service Management, Marketing & Communications, Identity Management, Web Hosting, and Integration Middleware.

John started his career on the academic side of the house as a Philosophy Professor, teaching for a decade at the University of Memphis before moving into administration full-time. He has enjoyed a wide range of positions in Information Technology over the years and brings a perspective informed by academic as well as IT related experiences at multiple levels of the organization.

John received his PhD in Philosophy from King’s College London and a BA in Philosophy & Greek from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He grew up in North Carolina, mostly in the Wilmington area, but spends a lot of his leisure time these days in the NC mountains. John loves playing tennis, fly-fishing, and CrossFit.
