Williams eyes changes in vice president post after Ouellette departure

The following letter from Williams College President Morton Owens Shapiro
has been circulated on campus:

July 15, 2005

To the Williams Community,

Now that Helen Ouellette has left the College and begun her work at Oxfam America, let me tell you about the organization I’ve put in placeto do the work of the vice president for administration and treasurer until we appoint her successor.

I'll be working closely with those who reported directly to Helen as they carry on their responsibilities. These are Irene Addison, Associate Vice President for Facilities and Auxiliary Services, Adriana Cozzolino, Assistant Vice President for Administration, Sue Hogan, Controller, and Martha Tetrault, Director of Human Resources. The College is fortunate to have such able people in these positions. There are two changes for this interim period. Adriana will take on the role of Acting Treasurer and Jim Kolesar, Director of Public Affairs, will oversee the College’s relations with the local community.

Before launching a national search, I'm taking time to review, in consultation with the Board of Trustees, the structure of the vice presidency and of the position of Manager of Investments and Treasury Operations, which also is vacant. I’ll report back to you when these matters are settled.

Meanwhile, I'm sure that you'll join me in working with our colleagues mentioned above to make this interim time a productive one for Williams.

Morton Owen Schapiro
