"Jennifer Taylor has been an extremely valuable member of the NMSU executive team," said NMSU President Barbara Couture. "Her counsel and planning have made it possible for NMSU to handle revenue shortfalls that reflect our state and nation's economic downturn without jeopardizing our commitment to quality. Furthermore, her business acumen has helped NMSU become both financially strong and fiscally efficient - a boon both to our academic programs and to the taxpayers of the state of New Mexico."

Taylor's areas of responsibility include accounting and business operations, auxiliary services, operation and maintenance of facilities, human resource services and financial systems administration. She is a certified public accountant and has a bachelor's in accounting and a master's in business administration from NMSU.

President Couture has asked Jay Jordan, interim executive vice president and provost, to chair a search committee for a new senior vice president for business, finance and human resources. Greenwood/Asher and Associates Inc. has been selected by the university to work with the search committee. Greenwood/Asher is a recognized leader in university executive searches. More information about the search will be announced soon.
