Wilson Garland

Executive Director

Wilson is fortunate to lead the exceptional group of professionals and educators that are part of the Advance IT team. He is committed to building the partnerships and organizational capacity needed to expand the significant impact that this Minnesota State Center of Excellence has on building a robust IT workforce in Minnesota.

He comes to Advance IT after more than a decade in higher education at Capella University where he served as the business and operational leader for the graduate and undergraduate business and IT programs. Most recently, he cofounded and served as the CTO of SkillFitness, a company that develops and sells mobile learning software for skill development and mastery.

Wilson moved here to Minnesota over 20 years ago to work for 3M in marketing and product development. He and his family currently reside in Saint Louis Park and enjoy travel, tennis, skiing, biking, and just about anything that involves the outdoors.  Contact Wilson at 612-659-7228.
