Computerworld reports that data breach victim Ohio University has named an interim CIO to replace William Sams, who presided over IT at the time of the security lapses. The university selected Shawn Ostermann to head up its IT department.  Ostermann teaches at Ohio University and chairs its School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. 

Frank Garofolo announced his retirement from Holiday Stationstores after 33 years with the Bloomington, Minn.-based convenience store and gas station chain. The CIO will continue to work for the company in a consultative role through 2008. Holiday Stationstores hired Randy Skare to succeed Garofolo. Skare, who begins his new role later this month, worked for the company in the past. He currently serves as president of IT consultancy Continuity Consulting and previously held director-level positions with Best Buy.
