David Zlatic, Chief Technology Officer, Cincinnati Museum Center
I first joined Cincinnati Museum Center as a Traveling Exhibits Technician in 2002, after I graduated from the University of Dayton. After moving on to multiple positions elsewhere in Cincinnati — I was director of business operations and technology at Xavier University for 11 years — I returned to Cincinnati Museum Center as Chief Technology Officer in June 2017.
I provide strategic direction to teams to steer them towards success. I practice the use of design thinking and human-centered design as I develop empathy for customers and team members. I believe in the power of adopting and leveraging digital assets and technology. By harnessing this fresh technology, we can improve efficiency, increase productivity and achieve our goals sooner.
I am accomplished in building new ideas from the ground up – providing the foundation for long-term growth. I unite stakeholders and prepare them for change as we reimagine and redevelop existing structures and operations. Additionally, I am an effective educator and trainer with experience in Higher Education and Corporate Training. I thrive on helping others (and myself) realize their visions and dreams!
