NMSU to reopen senior VP of administration and finance search in new fiscal year

The initial search for New Mexico State University's senior vice president for administration and finance has concluded without selecting a candidate. A new search will be initiated during the next fiscal year.


Jay Jordan, director of the Physical Science Laboratory on the NMSU campus, chaired the search committee and noted the importance of bringing on board the ideal candidate.

"The search committee did an excellent job and was fully committed to conducting a comprehensive and professional search and interview process, and I am thankful for their tireless efforts," Jordan said. "While we had the opportunity to speak with many well-qualified and attractive candidates, in the end it was felt that an expanded search is warranted to find just the right person for this challenging role."

In the meantime, Angela Throneberry will continue to serve as interim senior vice president. She assumed this role from Jennifer Taylor, who retired from the position last November, after 27 years of service at NMSU.

Throneberry has served as associate vice president for administration and finance since 2008. Since joining NMSU in 1991, she has held a series of positions of increasing responsibility, including assistant vice president for auxiliary services and director of financial operations. She is an NMSU graduate and a Certified Public Accountant.

NMSU's Administration and Finance division encompasses the areas of budget, finance, human resources, auxiliary services, facilities and services, real estate and information and communication technology.
