News went out to campus this afternoon about my VP’s move up the Gulf Freeway. If you missed it, you can read about it here. Susan Coulter has been a good boss and leader, and it’s with mixed feelings that we’ll say goodbye. As someone close to this one, I can say the news release really does pretty much capture it: She’s done good work here, and with the completion of the campaign, a change in leadership and a great new opportunity in her own backyard, the time is right for her to make the move. (Come September, I will have served under three presidents and three advancement VPS. Maybe they might come in pairs, like new socks?)
To Susan: Thanks for your guidance and support these past 10 years. We’ve had a few lows and a lot of highs at UTMB, and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to work for and learn from you. Best wishes at the Med Center. We’ll save you a spot on the Seawall when you want to come down for a visit.
