Maimone To Leave UNCW For UNCG

By Jenny Callison, posted May 16, 2014
The University of North Carolina Wilmington is losing its chief financial officer to its sister institution up the road.
 
Friday morning, Linda P. Brady, chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, announced in a news release the appointment of Charles Maimone as UNCG’s vice chancellor for business affairs – the same position Maimone currently holds at UNCW.
 
In his new position, Maimone will serve as a member of the executive staff and lead UNCG’s business affairs division with overall responsibility for financial administration and university operations, the news release stated. He assumes his new duties Aug. 1.
 
“We are pleased that Charlie Maimone will be joining UNCG in this strategically important role. He is an accomplished business affairs leader who brings extensive UNC system experience and a successful record of driving innovative funding and efficiency solutions in a dynamic environment,” Brady said in the release.
 
Maimone has served as UNCW’s vice president for business affairs and CFO for the past six years, according to his online profile. His responsibilities included the oversight of financial services, human resources, facilities operations, university police, auxiliary and business services, institutional risk management and environmental health and safety.

UNCW chancellor Gary Miller said, in an email to the campus announcing Maimone's departure, that at UNCW the CFO has managed an operating budget of $268 million and total assets of $695 million.

"Over the years, Charlie has distinguished himself as someone dedicated to helping higher education develop innovative approaches to funding challenges," Miller said in the announcement.

"The Board of Trustees appreciates Charlie Maimone's leadership and dedicated service, especially during fiscal challenges," Wendy Murphy, UNCW's trustees chairwoman, said in a statement. "He has been an asset to UNCW throughout his years on our campus. We wish him well at UNCG, a research institution that will offer Charlie a new set of opportunities to benefit the state of North Carolina. Even though he is going to a sister institution, he will always be a Seahawk to us."

Miller's email to his colleagues stated he was sharing the news "with mixed emotions," and added, "I know how many of you have worked with Charlie, either directly or otherwise, and even if you haven’t, you know of his stellar reputation as a terrific leader, an innovative strategist and a kind and supportive colleague. This new opportunity was one he just couldn’t pass up, and we know he will excel at UNCG as he has here at UNCW.

"We certainly will miss Charlie’s business acumen, collegiality and detailed approach to problem-solving," Miller continued. "I especially appreciate the leadership and focus he contributed to a number of campus-wide initiatives, including shared services, the unified budget process, alternative distance education business models, the Student Rec Center and outdoor enhancement project, and the development of the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. He also co-chaired the University Innovation Council with Provost Denise Battles."

Maimone received an MBA from the College of William and Mary as well as a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Education degree from Ohio’s Kent State University. He is a certified public manager, according to the profile.
 
Prior to joining UNCW, Maimone held several key leadership roles with The College of William and Mary, including associate vice president for administration and director of auxiliary services. He previously held a series of auxiliary services, housing and food services and residence life positions at UNCW, as well as residence hall-related roles with Kent State and Miami University in Ohio.
