Welcoming Laurent Heller to the UW-Madison community

I am happy to announce that we have hired Laurent Heller as our new vice chancellor for finance and administration. Laurent is currently the assistant vice chancellor, financial planning and analysis at the University of California, Berkeley, and has previously served in key administrative roles at Cal, including as director of the campus budget office and director of strategy and analysis for the Law School. He is expected to join us in mid-August. You can read more about him here. I want to thank Mike Lehman for the great work he has done as interim vice chancellor, and also the search and screen committee for their fine work.
