Chicago native Matt Heinzel, former deputy director for TeraGrid's Grid Infrastructure Group (GIG), became the new GIG director on April 2. In this role, he occupies an office at Argonne National Laboratory, not far from the University of Chicago, where TeraGrid coordinates the GIG.

“Matt has been serving as the lead administrative officer of the TeraGrid GIG. Appointing him to the position of GIG director was an easy decision for me and a well-deserved promotion for Matt," said Ian Foster, TeraGrid GIG principal investigator. “His dedicated leadership has helped to shape TeraGrid as we know it. I look forward to working with him in this new role.” 

Heinzel brings with him many years of technology-related administrative experience. Prior to leading the TeraGrid GIG, he held various senior information technology management positions, including Technical Services Director, Senior Manager of Business Systems, among others. As director of an off-shore team of 29 support analysts, programmers, and system architects, Heinzel gained unique administrative experience that will allow him to successfully lead TeraGrid’s widely distributed matrix organization.
