Moving Forward: Changes to the organizational reporting of the Senior Vice President’s Office
Jan. 25, 2011 College News - Dr. John R. Raymond, Sr., President and CEO, announced today a change in the organizational reporting of the Senior Vice President and associated administrative and finance functions.
The organizational reporting change will create a single reporting line of the Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer to the President and CEO. The Senior Vice President has historically had a dual reporting line to both the President and CEO, and the Dean and Executive Vice President. Business and administrative functions within the Office of the Senior Vice President include Finance, Human Resources, Information Services, Campus Operations and the Internal Consulting Group. This position, and the associated administrative and finance functions, also plays a key role in the planning, financing and implementation of strategic initiatives of the College.
The Corporate Compliance and Risk Management Offices, which had previously reported to the Senior Vice President, will also be changed to report directly to the President and CEO. Nationally it is the norm in organizations for the Compliance Officer to report directly to the institution's leader.
“These shifts acknowledge the necessary balance between institutional responsibilities and central administrative support, with the academic and programmatic initiatives of the Medical School, Graduate School, Academic Departments, and Research Centers and Institutes,” said Dr. Raymond. “This revised organizational structure is consistent with reporting structures in other academic medical centers and places the College in a positive position for continued growth.”
These changes were approved by the Medical College’s Board of Trustees on Friday, Jan. 21, and are effective on that date. The College has previously announced a search committee to find the College’s new Senior Vice President.
