A message from Santa J. Ono, President and Vice-Chancellor
In April, I announced that Peter Smailes, Vice-President, Finance and Operations, was leaving UBC to take up a new opportunity. I have now launched a search for a new Vice-President, Finance and Operations, and am seeking your views on the qualities you’d like to see in this appointment.
The Vice-President, Finance and Operations, reports to the President and provides strategic leadership to the Finance and Operations portfolio — to accomplish the vision, commitments, goals, and actions of the university’s Strategic Plan: Shaping UBC’s Next Century.
Responsibilities include oversight of the university budget, treasury and operations, including Workday Finance, on both Vancouver and Okanagan campuses, as well as overseeing the relationship with organizations such as the UBC Investment Management Trust and UBC Properties Trust.
