ISU associate vice president and comptroller Greg Alt has been chosen to fill the role of interim vice president of Finance and Planning beginning Feb. 24.
ISU President Timothy Flanagan has requested Alt fill in for current interim vice president of Finance and Planning, Dan Layzell. Layzell will be leaving ISU Feb. 21 to become Vice President for Finance and Administration at Louisiana State University.
“[Greg] has a tremendous amount of experience and is very familiar with ISU,” Layzell said. “We also have a very strong team within the Division of Finance and Planning that will help him as he moves into his new role.
While Alt’s previous position primarily focused on financial operations of the University, his new position will require him to cover that in addition to handling human resources and the overall budget of the area. For the last 12 years, Alt, an ISU graduate, has also been noted as a leader in budget development, forecasting, strategic planning and several other responsibilities.
“[I look forward to] continuing ISU’s success in maintaining financial stability in challenging times and in continuing on the same good work as Dan,” Alt said.
