Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to tell you that Paul E. Jenny has accepted the position of Vice Provost for Planning and Budgeting.  Paul has deep experience in academic resource management and comes to us from UC Berkeley, where he is currently Associate Vice Chancellor of Budget and Resource Planning.

Paul’s education includes an MBA from Loyola University New Orleans (1999), where he was named G. Ralph Bryant Outstanding MBA student. He is also a Husky, with his BA in Economics from the UW in 1992. Paul and his wife, Alisa, are excited to be coming to the UW and Seattle, as we are excited to have them.

I’d like to take this opportunity to extend my deepest thanks to Gary Quarfoth, Interim Vice Provost, for his leadership during this time of transition in the Office of Planning and Budgeting. At the moment, Gary is leading the office in their move to the UW Tower.

Paul will assume the position of Vice Provost as of July 1, 2008. Please join me in welcoming him!
