Dear B&F staff member,
I’m so excited to have joined the University of Michigan family and the B&F portfolio as your new colleague and Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. My wife Betty and I have received such a warm welcome from everyone we’ve met– we are pleased to be here.
You may know that I came from the University of Texas as the CFO there. When I considered moving, there was really no other option. Michigan is an institution that all the great publics aspire to be.
I look forward to meeting each and every one you at one of the “Meet and Greet” B&F Staff Ice Cream Socials we are holding in July. I will be at the following locations between 12:30-1:30 p.m. Please drop by and shake my hand.
- July 10: Wolverine Tower Suite 18
- July 23: Kipke Conference Center Room 2029
- July 29: Arbor Lakes South Dome
I also hope to get around campus to “walk in your shoes” over the next year, and would welcome your ideas for B&F job sites or staff meetings where I could visit and get to know you. Please send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I inherited a great leadership team, and over the summer we will be working on aligning our B&F goals in support of the President’s agenda for campus. We will talk more about that in the fall. I am re-initiating the national search for the Associate Vice-President for Finance and sincerely thank Nancy Hobbs for her many months of interim service in this role.
I’ve only been here for a little over two months and already I’m absolutely astounded at the many, many good things that are happening and the important work you do each and every day to Make Blue Go.
I look forward to the day when I traverse the campus and hear “Hello, Kevin” from each of you as I pass by.
Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer
