(Washington, DC) – The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) has promoted five internal leaders as part of an organizational restructuring to better align the association with its strategic priorities.

NACUBO’s new leadership team, led by President and CEO Susan Whealler Johnston, is comprised of:

  • Matthew Hamill, senior vice president, Strategy and Solutions
  • Marta Perez Drake, senior vice president, Member Engagement
  • Randy Roberson, vice president, Leadership Development
  • Liz Clark, vice president, Policy and Research
  • Tadu Yimam, vice president, Digital Innovation

New to the leadership team are Randy Roberson, Liz Clark, and Tadu Yimam. Roberson will be responsible for the design, delivery, assessment, and regular improvement of NACUBO’s meetings and workshops and for launching new efforts; he previously served as director of strategic initiatives and in member engagement roles. Clark will expand her former federal affairs role to oversee research and communications. Yimam, who previously led the association’s online learning and publication efforts, will merge technology with marketing to create a new content delivery architecture.

Current Senior Vice Presidents Matthew Hamill and Marta Perez Drake will focus on association strategy, including business development and foundation relations, and member engagement and an emerging leaders program, respectively.

“At NACUBO, we are working tirelessly to become an indispensable asset to our members,” said NACUBO President and CEO Susan Whealler Johnston. “These are the right visionary leaders to have in place as we innovate and expand our offerings to help business officers operate at the highest level possible.”

The leadership team structure also includes a vice president of Administration and Finance, a position that is currently vacant. NACUBO is preparing to conduct a search for this leadership group member.

NACUBO’s new offerings will include Microlearning programs, expanded Value of Higher Education tools, new leadership development opportunities, and more. Additional member tools and services will be added throughout 2019 and 2020.

NACUBO, founded in 1962, is a nonprofit professional organization representing chief administrative and financial officers at more than 1,900 colleges and universities across the country. NACUBO works to advance the economic vitality, business practices, and support of higher education institutions in pursuit of their missions.
