Jeff Lipton has been appointed interim vice chancellor for administration at the University of Colorado Boulder. Lipton replaces Frank Bruno, who is leaving the university to become vice president of Western Disposal Inc. of Boulder.
“I believe Jeff Lipton will provide strong and seasoned leadership in the interim vice chancellor post until such time as a decision on a search is made,” said Ric Porreca, senior vice chancellor and CFO at CU-Boulder. “With the start of a new academic year (later this month), it is vital that we have leadership in place in this position to prepare the campus for the arrival of students, faculty and staff.”
Lipton currently serves as director of real estate for CU-Boulder and brings more than 30 years of experience to the job. He previously served as interim vice chancellor for administration in 2008. He also has served as interim business manager for the CU athletic department (2006-07), executive director of facilities management (1998-2006), director of business and telecommunications services (1982-1998) and as assistant to the vice chancellor for administration (1979-82).
