Sharon Meyer Named ASU Vice President for Fiscal Affairs
Sharon K. Meyer, vice president for administration and finance at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, has been named Angelo State University's vice president for fiscal affairs, effective July 8.
ASU President James Hindman announced the appointment. Meyer will assume the position currently held by Robert L. Krupala, who is retiring this summer after 34 years with the university.
"We are pleased that Sharon Meyer will be joining the ASU administration this summer," Hindman said. "She brings a wealth of experience to ASU as well as the conservative fiscal philosophy that has served this institution so well during Robert Krupala's tenure."
As vice president at ASU, Meyer will oversee ASU offices for accounting, inventory, business services, purchasing, physical plant, personnel, budget and investment, print shop and post office. Those responsibilities parallel the duties in her current position with Bloomsburg University, which she joined in 2000.
Meyer and her husband, Bryan, are both natives of Lubbock.
"Bryan and I are very happy to be returning to Texas and becoming a part of the Angelo State family," she said. "Angelo State University has an excellent reputation and I am particularly excited about working with the faculty and staff. I was extremely impressed by members of the university community during my interview process."
Among her accomplishments at Bloomsburg, she designed and implemented a new planning and resource allocation model as well as a comprehensive parking and transportation plan. She also revamped and decentralized administrative processes and coordinated and implemented a master plan for the campus.
Prior to joining Bloomsburg, she served five years as vice president of operations for Golden Gate University. In that capacity, she served as chief financial officer for the University with responsibility for finance, human resources, facilities, information technology services, business services, financial planning and analysis, contracts and grants, bursar and financial aid and auxiliary enterprises. Before that she worked two years as vice president of administration and finance at Rocky Mountain College.
Meyer started her career in higher education administration in the Houston area, working 26 years with the University of Houston and the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSC). She started out as assistant director of payroll for the University of Houston, then spent a year as payroll supervisor at UTHSC. Meyer next rejoined the University of Houston as director of budget, payroll and research accounting at its Clear Lake campus. She was then promoted to assistant director of financial services on the Clear Lake campus before being named assistant vice president for business services at the Clear Lake facility.
She holds her bachelor of science in finance from the University of Houston-Clear Lake and her master of business administration from Golden Gate University in San Francisco.
Meyer and her husband have a daughter, Michelle, and a three-year-old grandson, Aidan, who live in California.
