Berkey Appointed Interim Assistant Vice President for Finance & Business

Lisa Berkey has been named interim assistant vice president for Finance & Business, effective March 28. Berkey, who for the past nine years has served as director of design and construction for the Office of Physical Plant, replaces Greg Scott, who has been appointed senior vice chancellor for Business and Operations at the University of Pittsburgh.

Berkey will be responsible for leading several cross-cutting and strategic initiatives to enhance the delivery of finance and business operations across the University. These initiatives will involve collaboration across the F&B organization, the University's executive and academic leadership, and the Commonwealth Campuses.

"I am honored to serve the University and the Board of Trustees in this position," Berkey says. "I look forward to the opportunity to assist Finance & Business during this transition period."

"I am delighted that Lisa has agreed to step into this role in the wake of Greg Scott's departure," adds David Gray, senior vice president for Finance & Business/Treasurer. "Lisa has served Penn State with distinction for 30 years and brings a great understanding of Penn State's structure, governance, and business processes."

"Lisa is a well-regarded and trusted colleague by those who have had the pleasure of working with her, and her extensive knowledge of Penn State's capital facilities and capital planning processes will be invaluable in our support of the work undertaken by the Finance, Business, and Capital Planning Committee of the Board of Trustees."
