SUSAN CALANDRA will return to Business Affairs as senior associate vice president for finance in mid-August after serving as interim chief financial officer at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, according to RANDY LIVINGSTON, vice president for business affairs and chief financial officer. As senior associate vice president, Calandra will direct the activities of the Controller’s Office, Treasurer’s Office and Purchasing & Contracts, continuing the migration toward more integrated and efficient financial services for the campus. She also will serve as executive business owner of the university’s financial systems and will lead efforts to provide more effective financial information and reporting to faculty, departments and schools.

At SLAC, Calandra has worked to improve the quality of financial administration. In her new position, Calandra will continue to partner with SLAC and will become a member of the Audit and Finance Committee of the SLAC Board of Overseers. Calandra will remain at SLAC through mid-June while a search for her successor is initiated.

Calandra joined Stanford in 1993 as associate controller and was promoted to controller two years later.

In making the announcement, Livingston expressed appreciation to TANA HUTCHISON and KEN SCHULZ, who also accepted interim assignments at SLAC, and to ALLISON BAIRD-JAMES, who has served as interim controller.
