AURORA, Ill., (November 2, 2010) — Delivering students the most up-to-date training in information systems management, Rasmussen College announces the recent addition of Justin Denton to its School of Technology and Design faculty. Denton, who has an extensive background in computer and information systems management, will guide students through Information Systems Management, Computer Information Technology, and Network Administration courses as a full-time instructor at the Aurora campus.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers in technology-related fields continue to see faster than average growth, with employment of computer and information systems managers expected to increase by 17 percent during the 2008-2018 decade. As new applications of technology in the workplace continue to drive demand for workers in these fields, Rasmussen College is committed to preparing students to be at the forefront of emerging technical support issues by providing access to the most advanced resources and skilled faculty.

“Rasmussen College continues to recruit experienced faculty, like Justin, who have demonstrated remarkable success and leadership in their fields,” Rasmussen College Aurora Campus Director Susan Cheney said. “Justin will serve as a valuable resource to students who are part of our growing School of Technology and Design, bringing with him a strong understanding of information technology after working with some of the most recognizable names in the field throughout his 14-year career.”

Denton brings a wealth of knowledge to his position at Rasmussen College. Most recently, in his role as IT support manager for Centrue Bank, formerly Union Bank, he was responsible for driving merger activities between the two organizations through technology-based initiatives and implementations. In addition, during his tenure with IBM, Denton was responsible for supervising the daily activities of the Intel helpdesk supporting Lucent Technologies, previously located in Naperville, Ill.

Prior to becoming a Rasmussen College instructor, Denton was an adjunct faculty member at the University of Phoenix, where he taught online courses in networking and IT management. He earned a Master’s degree in Network and Communications Management from Keller Graduate School of Management in Oakbrook, Ill., and a Bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications Management from DeVry Institute of Technology in Addison, Ill.
