PSDS Welcomes Patrick Wood

Patrick Wood, new to PSDS.  Wood
also serves on UVA's Staff Senate and
serves as Membership Director, Co-
chair, of the Staff Senate Executive
Procurement and Supplier Diversity Services is pleased to announce that Patrick Wood, formerly of the Office of Sponsored Programs, has joined their team as a Procurement Specialist. A University of Virginia employee since 2014, Wood has also worked in Printing and Copying Services and with the Administrative Services Group in UVAFinance.

In his new role, Wood will be a buyer for catering, athletics, and hotel services.

"I'm eager to learn everything it will take to perform my new role effectively," said Wood, noting that he has a great team supporting him as he gets acclimated.

Wood is no stranger to learning new things -- he successfully transitioned to administrative work at UVA from a 16-year career in Elementary education, and is also currently halfway through attaining his Project Management Professional certificate.

Feel free to stop by and welcome Wood officially back to the UVAFinance family soon. Just don't look for him on November 6, as he'll be out of the office performing his duties as an election official (for the tenth year!).
