Search Committee Named for Chief Human Resource Officer

Eleven University officials will lead the search for Vanderbilt’s next chief human resource officer, assisted by an executive search firm.

The committee to screen candidates for the assistant vice chancellor position was announced May 27 by Jerry Fife, vice chancellor for Administration, who will chair the committee.

Human Capitol Group, of Brentwood, Tenn., has been retained to conduct the search, Fife said.

“This is a key position at Vanderbilt, which has a payroll of more than $1.5 billion a year and is one of the area’s leading employers,” Fife said. “I’m pleased to have such a distinguished group to help find the best fit.”

In addition to Fife, the members of the search committee are:
• Kevin Churchwell, M.D., executive director and chief executive officer, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt
• Marilyn Dubree, M.S.N., R.N., executive chief nursing officer
