A Message from Daren Hubbard
Interim Executive Vice President
It is truly a privilege to be speaking with you as Administration and Finance’s (A&F) interim executive vice president and interim chief business officer. I know there has been a considerable amount of leadership change in A&F over the past year and that can understandably cause feelings of uncertainty about the future. Fortunately, the future is becoming clearer with last week’s announcement about Shantay Bolton joining our team on August 14.
I and the Georgia Tech leadership team are very excited to welcome Shantay. She brings 20 years of experience working in a range of executive leadership roles, and her operational experience in higher education will serve us well as we continue to grow and implement our strategic plan. Her commitment to strengthening the employee experience and developing strategies that advance operational excellence, sustainability, and workplace diversity will greatly enhance Tech’s ability to achieve our academic, research, and service missions. Shantay will be joining us for the A&F Virtual Town Hall on July 14, from 2 to 3 p.m. More information will be shared closer to the date.
As you know, the beginning of the fall semester is less than 8 weeks away, and I expect that this time will go by very quickly. My goal as your interim leader is to provide a sense of continuity for A&F and sustain the momentum of the hard work underway to prepare for a successful academic year. Because of your dedication, I am confident in A&F’s ability to continue to deliver with excellence in all that we do, and I thank you.
I hope you have a happy and safe July Fourth Weekend!
