Dr. Burnett will join the finance team in leading the finance and business functions of the system, our four campuses and the university health care enterprise. His background includes service as associate vice president for administration and foundation relations at CU, where he managed the Development Services Agreement between the university and the CU Foundation supporting fundraising activities at all campuses in the University of Colorado System.

Dr. Burnett’s first day with the system will be August 25, which will enable me to again focus full-time on my continuing role as Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer. I appreciate your hard work, cooperation and patience during this interim period.
Please welcome Dr. Burnett to our Finance team.
