After a comprehensive search, Bill Ashby has been chosen as the AVP of Financial Strategy. Ashby comes to UVAFinance from the Batten School of Leadership & Public Policy where he was Senior Associate Dean for Administration. His 18 years of leadership at UVA will serve us well as we transform our financial team and strengthen our partnerships with the University Community.
In this re-imagined leadership role, Ashby will build out UVAFinance’s reporting and analytics strategy to strengthen our partnership support model serving UVA’s stakeholders from the Board and foundations to fiscal administrators, both today and in the post-FST world. He will also manage our internal administration for UVAFinance.
Finance Outreach & Compliance, the Administrative Services Group, and Foundations will report to the AVP of Financial Strategy. He will work very closely with the Office of Financial Planning & Analysis, Treasury, Financial Operations, and the Financial Strategic Transformation team to achieve these objectives.
