Aren Cambre is a manager of web technologies at a Texas university. The way he explains it is, “If the web sites look like crap, they’re yelling at Public Affairs. If it’s broken, they’re yelling at me.”
Aren is leading a Sitecore CMS implementation project. In this project, Aren is introducing modern, agile project management methodologies. Sitecore recently recognized him as one of four North American Most Valued Professionals.
Aren knows how to fill his spare time:
He is pursing a doctorate in Engineering Management. He has completed all coursework and is working on his qualifying examinations leading to candidacy. This prospective doctorate complements Aren’s Master of Science in Computer Science and bachelors degrees in computer science and mathematics.
He was president of the Lake Park Estates Neighborhood Association for four years. Under Aren’s leadership, the association increased membership, incorporated and got IRS 501(c)(4) status, introduced new programs, revolutionized neighborhood communications with technology, maintained excellent finances, and fostered an unusually high participation rate.
He does political activism. He did an exhaustive analysis of the 2008 Texas Republican Platform, where he calls for drastic improvements and shortening. He believes the platform should be in plain English, focused, and appeal to more than half of the electorate, not just the furthest right factions. He also served on the 2010 Republican Senate District 16 Resolutions Committee. This committee folded grassroots resolutions into a recommendation for the state platform committee. He was also a co-author of the Speed Limits plank that was added to the state platform in 2002.
Aren is married with two children and is an active member of a United Methodist church.
