FOCUS: 40 UNDER FORTY

Michael G. Miers

Chief Information Officer, Anna Maria College, Paxton

Birthplace: Leominster
Residence: East Brookfield
High school: Tantasqua Regional High School
Colleges and degrees earned: Bachelor's degree and MBA, Anna Maria College

Career highlights: During my tenure at Anna Maria, I have gone from work study to CIO. I was named director of information technology when I was 23. With the support of the administration, we have completely overhauled the technology infrastructure and created a redundant, primarily virtual, environment.

Community involvement: I am actively involved on the worship teams at my church. Outside of that, I like to organize praise and worship nights that raise money to help local programs, especially around Christmas, raising money for presents and food for underprivileged families in our local communities.

Ultimate career goal: Vice president of information systems/chief information officer for a large public institution.

Non-relative you admire most: Dr. Jack Calareso, former president of Anna Maria College. He gave me an opportunity to succeed at Anna Maria and mentored me throughout his tenure.

Hidden talents: I sing and play guitar on a few worship teams at my church and organize praise and worship nights.

"By the time I turn 50, I'd like to have accomplished … publishing a book and regularly speaking at conferences and panels."
