East Carolina University has named Dr. Rick Niswander vice chancellor for administration and finance.
He's been serving in an interim role since November.
Niswander has been at ECU for 17 years. He taught accounting in the College of Business and also was dean of the College of Business from 2004 until now.
According to ECU, Niswander will be responsible for business services, campus operations, financial services, human resources, information technology and university facilities, including construction and renovation of campus buildings.
ECU reports his salary is $270,000 a year.
“While this appointment reflects his financial skills and competencies as well has his business experience, it is even more reflective of the great leadership skills that he exhibits every day,” ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard said. “He will be a great addition to an already strong senior leadership team at ECU.”
