Office Renamed Finance and Administration
Call the letterhead people—NC State’s financial office has a new name.
On Monday, Chancellor Randy Woodson announced in a 3D memo that, effective immediately, the Office for Finance and Business will now be known as the Office for Finance and Administration.
The decision was made to coincide with the retirement of Vice Chancellor for Finance and Business Charles Leffler, who helped evolve his office to include more services, more responsibilities and a larger scope of influence on campus.
“The name is more standardly used at the national level and will better represent the portfolio of work to prospective candidates,” Woodson wrote in his memo. “During Vice Chancellor Leffler’s tenure, the office has broadened its focus on creating the platform for public-private partnerships with Centennial Campus Development, launching shared services through University Business Operations and consolidating auxiliary operations under Campus Enterprises, as just a few examples.
“The office will begin transitioning to the new name immediately, and the recruitment for the new position will be as Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration.”
Lefler plans to retire in October and a national search is underway for his replacement.
