Virginia’s Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) has chosen Sean Mallon, a leader in tech transfer and innovation, to serve as vice president of the center’s recently created Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Division.

In his new role, Mallon will develop a backbone of statewide resources to assist regional entrepreneurship ecosystems and ensure that all programs are inclusive to communities that have been historically underrepresented in entrepreneurship and venture funding.

Mallon has served at CIT in the past, working with portfolio companies as senior investment director for the CIT Gap Funds. In between, he served as associate vice president for entrepreneurship and innovation at George Mason University. While there, he also oversaw the Mason Enterprise Center, the Office of Technology Transfer, and the student-focused Mason Innovation Exchange.

“Sean is a great addition to CIT’s executive team and a perfect fit for the Ecosystems VP role,” says Bob Stolle, CIT President and CEO. “He has extensive experience and is well known and respected by our regional stakeholders.”

Mallon comments, “I am delighted to be returning to CIT in this important new role. Virginia’s entrepreneurial spirit is strong, and CIT is committed to working with entrepreneurial ecosystem stakeholders around the Commonwealth to strengthen the pipeline of high-growth startups and support entrepreneurs as they launch and scale their businesses.”
