Congratulations Jimmy!

Jimmy got married!

Jimmy de la O and his beautiful wife, Brittany were married on October 6th at Beckman Mill in Beloit, Wisconsin. They were thankful for a warm, sunny day after the forecast called for rain and thunderstorms!

On behalf of the entire ICIT team, we couldn’t be happier for Jimmy, Brittany and Gracelyn. You guys make a lovely family.

Please take some time to congratulate Jimmy “The Godfather” de la O.

Congratulations Morgan!

Over the summer, Morgan Vosters, now Morgan Fries (pronounced “freeze”) married her fiancé Drew Fries. They were married at the Barn at Trinity Peak in Oconomowoc.

We’d like to wish Morgan and Drew a lifetime of happiness and congratulations as newlyweds! We are so happy to have Morgan on the ICIT team, and we now know the reason for that constant smile on her face!

Please take some time to congratulate Morgan the next time you see her!

Thank You Kathy Seidel!

As most, if not all of you know, Kathy Seidel left ICIT last week accepting a position with a hiring firm under Foxconn. Kathy will be the second in command for hiring, which plans to range in the thousands in the next several years. As Kathy mentioned, this was an unexpected but amazing opportunity that she simply could not pass up.

Kathy started her work with ICIT in 2016 as a student employee and quickly worked her way to a full-time position in the CIO Office. More recently she took over HR responsibilities and has been playing a major role in the Involvio Project. Kathy will continue to work with ICIT on a limited basis (5 hours/week) until Involvio is rolled out.

Thank you to everyone who donated money for Kathy’s going-away gift. She absolutely loved it and was thankful for the party as well. If you have not yet, please wish Kathy good luck on her new adventure, she will be missed.
