Colin Couchman, Director of the IMPACT Group, has accepted the inaugural role of Director, Cybersecurity and Business Services at Western Technology Services (WTS). Colin will be responsible for providing strategic leadership related to information systems and cybersecurity for the university, institutional business intelligence and data analytics initiatives, and financial and resource administration of Western Technology Services.

During his time at the faculty, Colin was instrumental in overseeing new initiatives, including the establishment of the IMPACT Group, the only one of its kind at Western University. Good luck Colin in your new role.


Few Faculties have the fortunate opportunity to work with such talented individuals, as Colin. Throughout his time with us, he was instrumental in overseeing new initiatives, including the establishment of the IMPACT Group, the only one of its kind at Western University. His success in bringing numerous ventures to completion further attests to his highly collaborative nature, ability to vision for the future, adaptability, and rich experience. He will take this accumulation of knowledge, skills, and competencies to a broader context for the benefit of all faculty, staff, and students at Western University in his roles at WTS. I am exceedingly proud of Colin’s accomplishments and pleased that they have been fully recognized by the leadership of Western. As Colin applies his many talents developing solutions to complex cybersecurity and business tasks, I know that we will all continue to realize benefit from his expertise.
