Gregg Goldman Named Senior Vice President for Business Affairs and CFO
Following a national search, Gregg Goldman has been selected as senior vice president for business affairs and chief financial officer of the UA.
In his role as the senior officer for business and finance, Goldman will be responsible for budgeting, business processes and relationships with University-related corporations. He will succeed James A. Hyatt, who served in an interim capacity for the past 15 months.
"Mr. Goldman's experience will allow him to provide sound stewardship of the University's finances and to foster the business and community partnerships necessary to support our faculty, students and staff," said UA President Ann Weaver Hart. "His addition will fulfill a key piece of our plans for continued growth."
During his career, Goldman has managed large capital projects, implemented responsibility centered management systems and developed innovative revenue generation models. Most recently, he served for 11 years as senior associate dean and CFO for the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. At USC, he oversaw a wide range of administrative functions that supported Marshall's instructional and research programs. He was responsible for managing the school's staff personnel, finances and physical facilities; recommending policies and procedures; planning and organizing for the future; and administering daily operations. In November, he attended a forum on globalization and innovation at the Antai College of Economics and Management at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, a partner institution with USC.
Prior to joining USC, Goldman was senior assistant dean for the Graduate School of Management at the University of California, Irvine; director of finance for the library system at the University of California, Los Angeles; and chief financial and operations officer at various private companies in the Los Angeles area. Goldman received a Bachelor of Science in business administration from Thomas Edison State College and an MBA from California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
"The University of Arizona is one of the world's premier research institutions, and I look forward to helping achieve the aspirations set out by Dr. Hart and the UA community in the Never Settle academic and business plan," Goldman said.
