Kelly Fox has been named vice president and chief financial officer of the University of Colorado. Fox, who has served as interim vice president for budget and finance since December, replaces Robert Moore, who retired and later became the finance vice president at Colorado College.
"During one of the most difficult budget times in the university's history, Kelly has proven that she has the skills and abilities to do the job and to do it well," said CU President Bruce D. Benson. "The Board of Regents and entire leadership team have great confidence in her abilities.
"Kelly also has great experience working with the Legislature and elected officials, and her insight will be a great advantage to the university."
Fox has been at CU since 2006, although she also worked at the university as system budget director from 2001-2004. Previously, she was director of policy, planning and analysis at the Colorado School of Mines. She has also held budget, policy and planning posts with the state of Colorado's Office of State Planning and Budgeting and the National Conference of State Legislatures.
