Entrepreneurship expert James Barrood has been announced as the New Jersey Technology Council's new CEO.

Barrood’s resume includes running Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Rothman Institute of Entrepreneurship since 1997, where he had a large role in connecting the area’s entrepreneurial, enterprise and technology community.

The appointment comes with the stepping-down of NJTC’s founder, CEO and President Maxine Ballen, who headed the institute for 18 years. Over her time at NTJC, she grew the institution into one of North America’s most successful trade organizations: NJTC has approximately 975 member companies.

“I’ve been part of the NJTC for many years,” Ballen said in a news release. “Though I’m looking forward to working on new projects, leaving is bittersweet. I know the council is in good hands with the appointment of Jim Barrood. It’s an exciting time for the council.”

Barrood will step in as the CEO of NJTC on Aug. 11.
