Yoke San Reynolds, vice president and chief financial officer at the University of Virginia, will retire at the end of the year.
Reynolds, 68, spent more than a decade helping to manage the university’s finances, much of it working for the legendary former Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Leonard W. Sandridge, who rose to the number two slot at the university in a career that spanned decades.
“She has been relentless in squeezing costs out,” said university President Teresa A. Sullivan in a news release. “When you squeeze a dollar out from the operational side, that’s a dollar you can use on the academic side.”
Among her accomplishments at UVa were the creation of a treasury function and an internal capital bank, which allows schools and other parts of the university to borrow from the school as a whole to fund projects.
