HFC welcomes Applications Systems Analyst Guy Lotowicz
One of the newest additions to the HFC Information Technology Services (ITS) department is Applications Systems Analyst Guy Lotowicz (pronounced “Lotto-witz”).
“I’m excited to be here. It’s a nice change of pace for me. My sister Hope and my daughter Amber also attended the College. Both of them had great experiences,” said Lotowicz, of Troy.
A Detroit native, Lotowicz is a graduate of Redford Union High School. From there, he earned his associate degree in robotics from Schoolcraft College and his bachelor’s degree in business/IT from Walsh College. Lotowicz is also a certified server administrator through Microsoft.
“I was always looking for a job in robotics, but that never happened for whatever reason, so I moved into IT,” he said.
35 years in IT
Lotowicz has more than 35 years of experience in IT roles. Some of the companies he’s worked for during his long career include IBM, what is now VMLY&R, Frank’s Nursery & Crafts, and Flagstar Bank.
He joined HFC in late 2022. His primary duties include supporting all Ellucian software products, including Colleague/HANK, HFC Self-Service, and Recruit. He reports to HFC Senior Systems Administrator Jerry Kondraciuk.
“Guy has been a great addition to the team. The technical side of Ellucian software has a steep learning curve, but Guy was able to jump right in, ask good questions, and quickly flatten the curve,” said Kondraciuk. “His vast experience in IT translates well to higher education. His passion for documentation has been key in the short time he has been with us. I look forward to watching him grow in his new role here at HFC.”
HFC feels like family
“When I interviewed with HFC, I knew I wanted something different,” said Lotowicz. “I was in a previous situation where the corporate culture was too intense. Being at the College is a good culture for me. I have a hybrid schedule, which has its advantages. The people here are very friendly and collegial and always willing to help out. When I worked at Frank’s, it felt like a family. I got that same feeling here at HFC.”
