BREAKING: Charles Crespy named dean of College of Business Administration

Charles Crespy has been named as the new dean for the College of Business Administration and will begin on June 15.

Crespy, who was named  head of the college today, is currently a professor at the University of New Mexico.

"I can tell you from my interview that I was impressed with the energy and enthusiasm of the faculty," he said.

He said one draw to the position was all the specialty programs the college offers.

He will take over for the position from Dan Vetter, who has been the interim dean since August 2009. Vetter will return to his role as associate dean for the college.

"I have no doubts about (Crespy's) ability to step up and start as dean," Vetter said.

Vetter said Crespy's experience will help him pick up the job quickly.

Crespy was dean of the University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management from 2004 to 2007 and was formerly the dean of the College of Business at the University of Texas at El Paso.

“Dr. Crespy’s prior experience and accomplishments as a dean at two major universities were important factors in selecting him as the best person to advance the goals and the mission of CMU’s College of Business Administration,” Provost Gary Shapiro said in the press release.

According to the release Crespy will make $250,000 annually.
