The University of Colorado system offices will begin a nationwide search for a new chief human resources officer.
Gregory Komarow has resigned from his position as associate vice president and chief human resources officer, citing urgent family issues.
While the search is underway, Carolyn Proctor, Employee Services director of operations and strategy, will lead the department. Proctor brings 12 years of institutional knowledge to the role.
Before joining CU in July, Komarow served as chief human resources officer for Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Johns Hopkins Medicine.
“It is unfortunate to see Greg leave under these unexpected circumstances,” said Kathy Nesbitt, vice president of Employee and Information Services. “We’re committed to ensuring a smooth transition to a new leader for Employee Services with no disruption to the services we provide to the entire university.”
Employee Services administers benefits, payroll, learning and development as well as wellness programs for CU faculty and staff.
When the search begins, the posting will be available on CU Careers.
