Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe Appoints DISYS' CEO Mahfuz Ahmed to the Board of Visitors (BOV) for George Mason University

Mahfuz Ahmed, founder and CEO of Digital Intelligence Systems, LLC (DISYS), a leading global technology services firm, has been appointed to the Board of Visitors (BOV) for George Mason University by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Board of Visitors of George Mason University was established in April 1972 by an act of the General Assembly after the university became an independent institution. The Board of Visitors exercises its authority principally in policy-making and oversight. Members of the Board serve four-year terms. Among Governor McAuliffe’s goals for the latest appointees in their roles is to use their positions to draw upon their experiences and networks to “prudently...manage our colleges and universities...to find cost efficiencies in order to keep tuition rates as low as possible and to embrace innovation...to prepare every Virginia student to compete in a 21st century economy.”

An alumnus of George Mason University, Mr. Ahmed’s professional background along with his understanding of the local greater Washington D.C. market, enables him to provide unique insight and consultation to the Board of Visitors and fellow members of the Board.

In 2011, Mr. Ahmed was applauded by former Virginia Governor McDonnell for his trailblazing efforts to continue to rejuvenate and grow the local job market around the company’s corporate headquarters in McLean. As a result of his efforts, DISYS was inducted into the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, a workforce incentive provided by the Virginia Department of Business Assistance (VDBA).

“I am honored to be appointed to the Board of Visitors (BOV) for George Mason University by Governor McAuliffe,” commented Mahfuz Ahmed. “Graduating from George Mason University was truly the launch pad of my career. Since my beginnings, I have been driven by the desire to achieve to my highest potential, and it has always been a central part of my leadership approach to inspire involvement and integrity in my employees and those around us. I look forward to the privilege of lending my experience to improve the management and accessibility of colleges and universities in Virginia, and continue to positively impact the surrounding community and state.”
