Info Tech, Inc. Staffing Changes

November 27, 2017

It is with much appreciation, excitement and also sadness to announce the retirement of Eric Erskine from Info Tech. Eric brought the software company a strong technical background along with immeasurable DOT, user community and task force experience. Eric started his employment with the Maine DOT in 1989 and spent over half his career there working in planning, project development, contracting, and construction before moving to the agency’s IT Group as a manager.  For more than ten of those years Eric was the AASHTOWare Project (Trns•port) Administrator and End User Designee (EUD). During that time, he served as a TAG Coordinator, the PUG Chair, Client/Server TRT member, and a member of the Trns•port Task Force (TTF).

After 23 years with the Maine DOT, Eric joined Info Tech in February of 2012. At Info Tech, Eric started as a technical lead on agency implementation projects before being promoted to the Director of AASHTOWare Project Development where he oversaw several of the most recent releases of the web-based software. Eric finished his career as the Vice President of AASHTOWare Products working closely with AASHTO and the Task Force to help shape the direction of AASHTOWare Project. Eric is very much looking forward to the next chapter of life although he will be sorely missed by all who worked alongside him.

Eric’s departure provides the bittersweet opportunity to elevate a long-standing critical member of Info Tech, whose leadership, vision and commitment have been consistently celebrated. As such, please welcome Ward Zerbe as Info Tech’s new Vice President of AASHTOWare Products.

Ward has been an Account Manager with Info Tech for more than 13 years supporting agencies with AASHTOWare Project products and services. He has more than 34 years of experience in software development, network communications, and the application of information systems. Ward graduated from The George Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and information systems and he holds the PMP certification from the Project Management Institute.  Ward’s career highlights include implementing a nationwide network infrastructure for the Federal Highway Administration, supporting intelligent transportation systems for the Maryland Department of Transportation, and delivering imaging and document management systems for pharmaceutical companies; he also spent a year overseas as an adviser to the Royal Thai Government implementing a project management system. Ward’s basic philosophy formed through his extensive background is that relationships are the key to making technology successful. Ward and his lovely wife Kim have 4 adult children.
