Wei named business school's new information chief

STANFORD -- Timothy T. C. Wei, director of computing services at the Stanford Graduate School of Business since 1988, has been named to the new position of director of information resources.

The position was created by the business school's combination of the J. Hugh Jackson Library and Computing Services into a single Information Resources office.

Wei will continue to oversee computing along with taking responsibility for the library. Bela Gallo will remain library director and will report to Wei.

In a memo announcing the reorganization, Dean A. Michael Spence and associate deans James Patell and Paul Johnson said that the change would reinforce the library's role as a "gateway to information." To fill that role, they said, the library must accelerate the automation of internal and external library processes and increase its focus on client services.

"The challenges presented by the library strategic plan are almost identical to those faced in the computing area a couple of years ago," the deans wrote. "At that time, we hired Tim Wei to provide the leadership necessary to implement the strategic plan developed for computing. Tim has done a superb job and has turned computing services into a highly service-oriented organization."

Wei formerly was director of information services for the city of San Jose for 12 years. He is a 1963 graduate of Cheng Kung University, Taiwan, and earned his master's in industrial engineering at UC-Berkeley in 1966.
