Colorado State University’s vice president for administrative services, Gerry Bomotti, announced today that he is accepting a position at the University of Nevada – Las Vegas. Bomotti, who has been with Colorado State since 1993, will conclude his tenure at the university on Aug. 31 to serve as the vice president for finance at UNLV.
As vice president at Colorado State, Bomotti has overseen the university’s human resources; payroll; parking; purchasing; physical planning; accounting, financial and budget functions; and institutional analysis.
"Gerry Bomotti has been a dedicated administrator and has served Colorado State well for more than 11 years. While we understand Gerry’s desire to do what is best for his family, we appreciate the years of service he’s given to the university," said President Larry Penley. "We wish him and his wife Sally well in this endeavor."
Sally Bomotti is an assistant professor in the School of Education at Colorado State and will join the faculty in UNLV’s College of Education.
"It’s certainly with mixed emotions that we have decided to pursue this new opportunity. While we will miss Colorado, Fort Collins and Colorado State, there are some good opportunities for both Sally and me at UNLV," said Bomotti.
Penley will name a search committee and launch a national search for the vice president position in August. To ensure a smooth transition, Penley will make an interim appointment soon to allow the interim vice president time to work closely with Bomotti before his departure.
