Matt Fajack, who helped devise a new budget management system to guide the University of Florida through five difficult years of budget cuts during a statewide recession, will step down as vice president and chief financial officer on June 6.
Fajack has accepted a bigger job with more responsibilities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill — as vice chancellor of finance and administration. Along with the financial responsibilities, Fajack also will oversee the real estate portfolio, the police department and construction among other areas under UNC's new chancellor.
“I wasn't looking to leave, but they called me,” Fajack said. “I'm nervous. I'll be managing some areas I never managed before.”
