Orchid Cellmark Hires Lutz as Its New CIO

Nov 14, 20052 mins

William J. Lutz joined Orchid Cellmark today as its vice president of information technology.  He comes to the Princeton, N.J.-based provider of identity DNA testing services from Genencor International, where he most recently served as CIO.  At Orchid Cellmark, Lutz, 56, will lead a business process integration and automation initiatives as well as the deployment of new enterprise systems.   Prior to joining Genencor in 1997, he worked for Bausch and Lomb for 17 years. 

The Business Journal of Portland, Ore. reported last Friday that Tektronix hired Rob Blaskowsky as its new vice president and CIO.  He most recently worked for Serena Software as its VP and CIO. 

Last month, clinical software company etrials Worldwide appointed Jan Wilson to the position of vice president and CIO.  Prior to etrials, she possessed the following unwieldy title: technical solutions manager, delivery project executive and program manager for IBM’s global engagement and production outsourcing services.  Is there enough room on a business card for all that?  According to etrails’ press release announcing her hire, Wilson “successfully led complex and global IT initiatives for Fortune 500 companies and implemented multiple, emerging technologies to IBM’s worldwide customers including on-demand infrastructure, global Web-hosting, help desk, mainframe and workstation solutions.” How much do you want to bet she strikes an outsourcing deal for etrials with IBM?  That is, of course, provided etrials wasn’t already an IBM customer prior to hiring her. 

Movers & Shakers will not be updated tomorrow.
