Washington, D.C., July 13, 2016—The AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) announced today that Marc Levy has been named the association’s new chief information officer, succeeding Diana Bourke, who was appointed chief operating officer earlier this year. He will join the AAMC on Aug. 8.

In this role, Levy will lead the association’s IT unit in executing a long-term IT strategic plan in support of the AAMC and its member institutions.

He joins the AAMC after a long career with Marriott International, where he served in various positions of leadership, including chief architect, vice president of enterprise transformation programs, and vice president of application development and support.

“Marc brings an accomplished 30 years of IT experience partnering with business executives in the public sector and Fortune 500 corporations, and delivering innovative technology strategies, architecture, and enterprise systems,” said Darrell G. Kirch, MD, AAMC president and CEO. “The nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals depend on the AAMC’s strong information technology capability to support its many services, programs, data, and IT infrastructure. Marc’s expertise in IT strategy and operations will serve the AAMC well as he takes on this new role.”

Prior to Marriott, Levy was IT director of corporate systems at Bell Atlantic (now Verizon) and led research and development and systems integration efforts for several government agencies and commercial clients at Booz Allen Hamilton and TRW (now Northrop Grumman).

“I am excited to join and collaborate with the AAMC’s impressive leadership team to align IT operations with the organization’s short- and long-term goals and to deliver innovative, reliable, and cost-effective technology solutions to the academic medicine community,” said Levy. “I look forward to working with the IT unit to continue elevating the department’s creativity, effectiveness, and responsiveness so that we may deliver the highest level of service while affording challenging opportunities for our IT professionals to learn and grow their careers.”

Levy earned his BS in computer science with honors from the University of Maryland, his MS in computer science from the Johns Hopkins University, and his MBA from the University of Maryland Robert H. Smith School of Business.
