Finance Outreach and Compliance (FOC) is pleased to welcome Brandi Van Ormer and Brian Strickler to our team.
Brandi has accepted the role of UVAFinance Communications Manager and will be working across UVAFinance to develop, coordinate and deliver communication programs and materials to support our shared mission, vision and values. Her specific duties will include developing robust stakeholder-focused communication plans for UVAFinance and individual area initiatives and excecuting those plans in coordination with other communications professionals and affected stakeholders across the enterprise. Brandi will also be responsible for planning, management/coordination, and execution of internal UVAFinance communications efforts.
Brian has accepted the role of Process Improvement Lead and will lead teams that work across functional areas and with stakeholders to improve and streamline processes to ensure they are efficient, effective, maximize value, and support the UVAFinance mission, vision and values. In addition to leading teams himself, Brian will be available to providing coaching/mentoring to individuals leading process improvement initiatives within their own areas. He will be a champion of lean thinking and collaboration, working across organizational lines to create and support a culture of continuous improvement. A big part of his role will be assuring that the needs of all stakeholders are heard and considered in any initiative.
I'm very excited to add process improvement and communications support to the FOC portfolio and to have Brandi and Brian join us to lead these efforts. Please feel free to stop by Carruthers and say hello or to reach out and welcome them via phone or email; their contact information is available on the Contacts page.
