Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications and nominations for the position of Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs (VCBA). Reporting to the Chancellor, the VCBA serves as the chief business officer and CFO for the Institution. 

Located within the state’s largest and most dynamic city, UNC Charlotte is the fastest growing institution and second largest university within the 17-campus UNC System. The University’s mission is to leverage its location to offer internationally competitive programs of research and creative activity; exemplary undergraduate, graduate and professional programs; and a focused set of community engagement initiatives. As the state’s urban research university, UNC Charlotte maintains a particular commitment to addressing the cultural, economic, educational, environmental, health and social needs of the greater Charlotte region.  

The third-fastest growing city in the United States, Charlotte is currently the country’s 15th most populous city and the second largest in the Southeast. Serving as a major center for the finance industry (Charlotte is the nation’s second-largest center for banking and finance) as well as for the motorsports and energy industries, the region hosts headquarters for six Fortune 500 companies and 14 Fortune 1000 companies. Among them are Bank of America, Lowe’s, Honeywell International, Duke Energy, Nucor, Sonic Automotive and Sealed Air. Equally significant is the commitment of more than 200 additional Fortune 1000 companies that have placed one or more facilities within the Charlotte region.

The VCBA serves as the primary advisor to the Chancellor on all financial and operational issues and works collaboratively with the other members of the Chancellor’s Cabinet to plan, manage and optimize resources to achieve the university’s strategic priorities. The VCBA oversees the Division of Business Affairs. The VCBA also serves as the Chief Financial Officer for the University and is a responsible steward of human and fiscal resources. In addition, the VCBA is the ex officio treasurer of the Foundation and serves as staff officer to both the UNC Charlotte Investment Fund and the UNC Charlotte Endowment Fund Boards.

The successful candidate will have a master’s degree or advanced degree in a relevant field and 10 or more years’ experience in senior management in at least one of the areas relevant to the division: financial administration, administrative services, business administration or facilities management.
