Judge Glenn A. Grant, acting administrative director of the New Jersey Courts, has named John Italiano the assistant director of support services, effective Sept. 7.
As assistant director, Italiano will be responsible for the daily operations of the Support Services Division within the Office of Management and Administrative Services at the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC). He will oversee court security and security of all Judiciary facilities, facilities management and health and safety for the entire Judicial branch.
These duties will include telecommunications, construction projects to printing services. He also will serve as liaison to trial court management and to officials in the executive and legislative branches regarding security, facilities, and health and safety issues.
“John has proven himself a valued member of our management team,” said Judge Grant. “I am delighted that he will be taking on a larger role in our organization where his experience, commitment and leadership skills will serve the Judiciary very well.”
A graduate of St. Joseph’s University, Italiano has more than 33 years’ experience in administrative services, including 23 years in private industry. He joined the Judiciary in 2003 as operations manager, first in the Bergen Vicinage and then in the Burlington Vicinage.
In 2012 he was named support services administrator for the AOC. In this role, he has overseen statewide court and general security, facilities management, health and safety, emergency planning, continuity of operations plans, ADA accommodations, office services, and fleet services.
“I am honored to serve the Judiciary in this new role,” said Italiano. “I have enjoyed working with judges and staff in the vicinages and at the AOC, and I look forward to continuing those relationships and to working with other Judiciary managers and staff to ensure the ongoing success of our operations.”
