Washington College’s Sheila Bair informed the college community yesterday that Mark Hampton, the institution’s vice president for finance, has accepted a position as Vice President for Planning, Analytics, and Decision Support at the New York Institute of Technology. Hampton came to work for WC in the spring of 2014.
In his brief tenure, Hampton is credited with successfully managing several building projects on campus and a number of energy efficiency efforts that contributed to a reduction in the College’s carbon footprint. He also played a role in the financial modeling that permitted Washington College to freeze tuition for the coming academic year.
Bair said that the College’s chief of staff Joe Holt will step in as interim Vice President for Finance and Administration until a new CFO has been recruited for the position.
