I just returned to Fairfax, Virginia from a brief and emotional visit to campus with my wife Beth on Friday and I wanted to let you know that I am thrilled to have been selected as your next president. As you may have read, Beth and I met at Georgia Tech while pursuing our doctorates. Last month, our son Alex earned his BS in Computer Science at Georgia Tech as well. For about a decade, I have served on the Georgia Tech Advisory Board and visited often. So, as we walked in front of Tech Tower last week, it felt like coming home — back to where it all began.

The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG) today named Dr. Ángel Cabrera president of the Georgia Institute of Technology. He will assume the position before Sept. 15, 2019.
“Georgia Tech will continue to excel under the leadership of Dr. Cabrera,” said USG Chancellor Steve Wrigley. “His experience, skillset and deep ties to his alma mater will serve the campus community well, and his vision for the future will help lead Georgia Tech to new heights. I am grateful to the Board of Regents and the search committee for their time and effort in this selection process, and I congratulate Dr. Cabrera on his new role.”
