USU appoints new CEO

Some of you may have been aware that USU's CEO, Paul McJannett, recently announced that he is moving on. Paul leaves after 10 years of loyal service as Chief Executive Officer and 17 years total service to the USU. Paul has been a great champion for the USU in his time here. Amongst his many achievements, Paul led the USU through a troubling VSU environment, helping the organisation bounce back to become the efficient and effective provider of the student experience that it is today.

Paul moves into an advisory role as a handover for the CEO begins this week. Whilst we are sad to lose this long serving member of the USU family, we wish him the best of luck for the next stage of his undoubtedly promising career.

After a very rigorous recruitment and screening process, the USU Board have finally appointed a new CEO. Andrew Woodward, previously the USU's Finance Director, has played a pivotal role over the past 12 months at the USU. Amongst many other things, Andrew has helped to dramatically improve the USU's financial position in 2010 and 2011 and looks forward to playing a significant role in the upcoming negotiations. Andrew is well equipped for the role and we are confident that he will add significant value to the USU.

The Board congratulates Andrew on his successful appointment and we wish him well for the coming months as we continue our provision of the #1 ranked Student Experience in Australia.

Stay tuned for an update on the USU-University Relationship!

David Mann
USU President
