Wednesday, April 02, 2008

Charles Maimone has been appointed vice chancellor for business affairs at the University of North Carolina Wilmington following approval of the appointment by the executive committee of the UNC Wilmington Board of Trustees. The appointment is effective May 12, 2008.

Maimone has been at the College of William and Mary since 1995, where he initially served as director of auxiliary services and where he has been associate vice president for administration and director of auxiliary services since 2001. Previously, Maimone had served in several positions at UNC Wilmington, from 1986 to 1995, including associate dean of students/residence life, director of housing and food services, and director of auxiliary services.

The vice chancellor for business affairs is responsible for supporting the university’s teaching, research and public service mission by providing quality business and administrative services to the UNCW community and ensuring transparency in planning and budgeting. Reporting directly to the chancellor, the position serves as a member of the administrative cabinet and as the university’s chief fiscal officer.

At the College of William and Mary, Maimone provided leadership on many projects and initiatives, including the implementation of an electronic purchasing program, restructuring of the university printing and copy services and implementation of a new fixed assets system. He was also the lead administrator on several major construction and renovation projects, most recently a $12 million complete renovation of a dining facility and construction of a $10 million parking deck and university police station.

In making the recommendation to the Board of Trustees, Chancellor Rosemary DePaolo cited Maimone’s broad range of experience in the business aspects of higher education and auxiliary enterprises, including one-card programs, bookstores, dining services, housing and residence life programs, dining, conference services, parking services and transportation.

“Charles Maimone’s 20-plus years of experience in business affairs and auxiliary services, some spent here at UNC Wilmington, will be a great asset for the university,” DePaolo said. “We are involved in several construction projects that require strong oversight as well as initiatives to expand parking, transportation and dining programs to complement campus growth. Charles offers valuable expertise in all of these areas.”

Maimone said he is excited to return to UNC Wilmington. “It is clear that UNC Wilmington is committed to student success and retention, research and community service. These are essential values that I share with the university community and I look forward to contributing to UNCW’s continued success.”

Maimone received a master’s degree in business administration from the College of William and Mary in June 2001, a master of education from Kent State University in May 1981 and a bachelor of arts degree from Kent State in May 1979. He is also a certified public manager.
