Randy Brown is a seasoned veteran to higher education that believes there is always a better way to approach and solve problems. . I’m the Director of Web Services for University Advancement at Michigan State University where I lead a team of front-end and back-end web developers. I’ve been in the IT field for 23 years and I was one of the first in the big ten to lead the charge for online donations. Just this year we were able to process over $2 million dollars online from 5000+ donors. My approach of define the problem before you begin development has allowed me to implement web solutions that hit the mark on expectations.
