Senior Director, Enterprise Applications
Johns Hopkins University
Geof Corb is the senior information technology leader responsible for enterprise applications for the Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System. Reporting to the CIO, Geof manages the business systems for the nearly $10B Johns Hopkins enterprise, in addition to a portfolio of technologies and related services that support the university's academic and research missions. Geof earned a B.S. in computer science in 1997 and an MBA in 2012, both from Johns Hopkins. Pediatric cancers have had a devastating effect on the Corb family. In June 2006, at 3 months of age, Geof's infant son Michael was diagnosed with mixed-lineage leukemia and was treated by Dr. Robert Arceci at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. Michael received a bone marrow transplant in October of that year and died as a result of graft-versus-host disease and related complications in December when he was only nine months old. Michael was named after his maternal uncle who was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme when he was 14 and died two years later. Geof, his wife Jenn, and children Alyssa (9), Jonathan (5), and Sarah (2) continue to celebrate the memory of their Michaels by supporting pediatric cancer research efforts. Alyssa has now participated in Swim Across America for two consecutive years, raising almost $14,000 to support the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. Geof is a family advisor on the Family Advisory Committee at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and will soon be a bone marrow donor, having been identified as a match for an unrelated patient in need.
