Amy B. Kweskin, vice chancellor for finance and chief financial officer at Washington University in St. Louis, has been promoted to executive vice chancellor for finance and will continue as chief financial officer, announced Chancellor Andrew D. Martin. The appointment is effective Jan. 1.
“Amy is a wise, trusted leader and colleague with great integrity, innovative solutions to changing needs and a deep commitment to safeguarding and optimizing the university’s financial resources,” Martin said.
“I value the thoughtful strategic and operational guidance she provides daily, but especially over the past 20 months, when the university had to make some difficult decisions in response to COVID-19.
“While the global pandemic negatively affected university revenues and resulted in unanticipated increased expenditures early on, Amy’s strong financial skills and problem-solving mentality helped limit the impact,” Martin said. “She is respected across the institution for her collaborative nature and wise counsel and richly deserves this promotion.
“She also played a pivotal role in the design and implementation of Workday, the university’s new human resources and financial administrative system, which successfully launched July 1.”
