VP Sullivan to Retire

January 20, 2011 - Campus Bulletin

University of Guelph president Alastair Summerlee has announced that Nancy Sullivan, the University of Guelph's vice-president (finance and administration) since 1995, has chosen to retire at the end of May. The University has started the process of searching for her successor, using the services of Morgan Leadership Search.

As part of the search process, Morgan Leadership Search will meet with members of the University community, and the position will be widely advertised beginning this week.

“Nancy has done an excellent job leading and managing the activities of this essential part of our university,” said Summerlee. “Her knowledge, guidance and support will be missed, but we wish her well and many happy years in retirement.”

Under Sullivan’s leadership the University has successfully completed the most significant additions to its capital facilities since its inception. She has been actively involved at the national level as president of the Canadian Association of University Business Officers and chair of the Canadian University Reciprocal Insurance Exchange. Locally, she is currently chair of the board of the YMCA-YWCA of Guelph.

Before coming to Guelph, Sullivan was vice-president (administration and finance) at Trent University and with the Government of Manitoba as assistant deputy minister of post-secondary, adult and continuing education and training.
