Ann Arbor, Mich.—March 19, 2012—Internet2 President and CEO Dave Lambert

In his new role, Morabito will be responsible for developing and implementing
external relations, in coordination with other higher education associations
and interests, with the goal of maintaining Internet2 as a leader, trusted
