EVP Search Is Launched

Board of Trustees Chairman Charles I. Clough Jr. will chair a search committee to find a successor for Executive Vice President Frank B. Campanella, who will leave his position next August, University President William P. Leahy, SJ, announced this week.

"Our hope is to have a new EVP named by the end of the spring," said Fr. Leahy, who will serve as ex-officio member.

Other search committee members will include Academic Vice President and Dean of Faculties John J. Neuhauser, Thomas A. Vanderslice, chairman of the trustees' Academic Affairs Committee, and R. Michael Murray Jr., chairman of the board's Finance and Audit Committee.

In addition, faculty, students, and administrators will be appointed to meet with finalists for the position and provide comments to Fr. Leahy.

The University has retained A. T. Kearney, an executive search firm, to help identify and evaluate candidates. The company assisted in searches last year for deans of the Carroll School of Management and the Graduate School of Social Work, and has recently worked with several major national institutions such as Georgetown, Cornell, and Duke universities and the universities of Pennsylvania and Michigan to find senior administrators.

Campanella announced at the annual Faculty Convocation in September that he would step down after serving for 24 years as executive vice president. Following a sabbatical, he plans to return to the classroom as a professor in the Carroll School of Management
