Department of Business Management
Lewicki in a Nutshell
After a 17-year career as a technical manager at IBM, I came to Pitt-Bradford in January 1996 as the director of CTM (that's a TLA -- three letter acronym for Computing, Telecommunications and Media Services; we were known for TLA's at IBM). I worked in Kingston, New York for most of my IBM career, working on systems software and complex systems projects ranging from mainframe software to Unix. When I decided to leave, I supervised a department of 33 software programmers. I have the greatest respect for IBMers, as they are a very dedicated and talented group of professionals. I made some very special friendships and relationships with the people there. I miss those people but certainly not the grind of the corporate environment.
My appointment within the business management department occurred in 1999. I thoroughly enjoy teaching the students here and am dedicated to creating a top notch MIS curriculum and program. Seeing students grow and develop their thought processes and knowledge base is truly a rush for me. My colleagues in business management. are truly mentors. I'm proud to be associated with the group of professionals here in CTM Services. What a knowledgeable, hard-working and service oriented group!
In my free time, I am a sports nut who still loves to play. Ask me about my Final Four trips to New Orleans especially the time when the Pope took time out to take in a game with me and my friends.
I really do enjoy technology and it is my addiction. My wife is very understanding and has the patience of a saint. I do a lot of work at my wireless laptop at home and I tend to zone out on everyone and everything. This is a major flaw.
I have three great daughters too. They are growing up so quickly. Of course, I'm very proud of them.
