Christenberry and Norman departing; Allison and Haislar named as interim VPs

Reid Christenberry, Miami’s first vice president of information technologies, has accepted a position as associate vice chancellor for information technologies in the University System of Georgia. In this new position, he will play a key role in assisting the 35 state institutions in Georgia shape the future of their information technology.

Christenberry joined Miami in 2003 and developed a strategic plan for Miami’s IT organization. His leadership resulted in the Miami Laptop Purchase Program and the move to a common platform for the university with the migration to Microsoft Outlook 2007.

The university will conduct a national search next fall to replace Christenberry, who will leave Miami in December. Debra Allison, deputy chief information officer, will serve as the interim vice president.

“We thank Reid for his contributions to Miami University and wish him success in his new role in Georgia,” said President David Hodge. “I appreciate the support that I know you will give Debi during this transition period.”

With the announced retirement of Richard Norman, senior vice president for finance and business services, effective Dec. 31, and with the search process going well, it is still not realistic to have Norman’s replacement on campus by Jan. 1, says President Hodge. “I have asked Adolph Haislar, senior associate vice president, to serve as the interim vice president for finance and business services effective Jan. 1, 2008,” he said. “Thank you for the support you have given Richard during his Miami career and for supporting Adolph during the transition.”
