Message from Laura Williams, Controller:
I am very happy to announce a few changes in the Controller’s Office management team. Ron Sanders will now be managing both the General Accounting and Disbursements (Accounts Payable, P-card, and Travel and Complex Payments, which will all continue to be supervised/led by Jerri Painter, Annette Heller, and Julie Hughes, respectively) areas as our Associate Controller–Accounting and Disbursements. Fang Zuo will supervise the General Accounting team as our new Accounting Services Manager. In addition, the remaining management team’s positions have been updated to reflect the leadership responsibilities and complexities associated with their positions. Names and working titles: Tony Georges, Assistant Controller–Financial Reporting; Megan Hauser, Assistant Controller–Tax and Payroll; and Heather Vetzner, Assistant Controller–Bursar. Finally, Greg Verret has accepted the Assistant Controller–Compliance position and will be leading the eCommerce and Business Process Analyst teams.
The Controller’s Office is a big one, and in my tenure thus far, I have quickly learned that I need a strong leadership team to execute key strategic initiatives and accommodate for the rapid growth we’ve been experiencing at the University. I’m excited about this team and what we will be able to accomplish together and with all of you. I know it is important to all of us to provide the highest level of support and service that we can to you and all of our stakeholders.
Please join me in congratulating all of these folks on their new/ever-evolving roles.
