Campus's chief budget officer steps down
31 March 2004
James Hyatt, vice chancellor for budget and finance, will be leaving Berkeley after 13 years for a new position as executive vice president and chief operating officer for Virginia Tech, that state's largest university. He will begin those duties in late July.
Hyatt, who serves as the campus's chief financial officer, has been at Berkeley since 1991. He has served in several roles, including vice chancellor for resources planning and budget, and associate chancellor for budget and planning.
Hyatt was responsible for developing a multi-year financial capacity and planning model, spearheaded the e-Berkeley Internet initiative, and helped implement the Berkeley Financial System, the online campuswide financial management system.
