The search for Marquette’s next chief financial officer is underway and a search committee has been named, Executive Vice President for Operations Dave Lawlor announced today. The new CFO will replace Chuck Lamb, vice president for finance, who last July announced that he will retire at the end of the 2016 – 17 fiscal year.
Dr. Doug Woods, vice provost for graduate and professional studies and dean of the Graduate School, will head the search committee, which will comprise the following:
- Todd Adams, trustee; president and CEO of Rexnord Corp.
- Dennis Butler, comptroller
- Cas Castro, vice president for human resources
- Kurt Gering, instructor of management
- Rick Holz, dean, Klingler College of Arts and Sciences
- Mary Janz, director, Residence Life
- Kris Ropella, Opus Dean of Engineering
“Keen oversight of the university’s financial operations is vitally important to ensuring that Marquette remains a responsible steward of its resources so that we can continue to deliver a world-class, transformative Catholic and Jesuit education for our students,” Lawlor said. “I’m thankful to Dr. Woods and the committee for generously offering their time and wisdom, and for their service to the university.”
Marquette has retained executive search firm Isaacson, Miller, which over the past several years has helped the university fill important leadership positions, including the provost, EVPO, dean of the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, and dean of the Diederich College of Communication.
The search committee will lead a series of listening sessions over the next few weeks. Watch Marquette Today for details.
