Changes in the QUT top team

Margaret Sheil has made “organisational realignments” in QUT’s senior management. The VC says the retirement of registrar Shard Lorenzo and the scheduled Christmas departure of chief information officer Judy Stokker led to a review of senior staff responsibilities. Professor Sheil told staff Friday there will be no redundancies and while, “a small number of our senior staff may have new supervisors, the realignment of portfolios will not adversely impact staff.”

Key changes include:

* establishment of a new role, VP business development, also with responsibility for, alumni, development, corporate engagement

* The library, HiQ student services, assurance and risk management move to VP Administration Adam Williams’ portfolio

* IT, Learning Environments and Technology and service and project management office will move to VP Graham Fryer’s resources portfolio

*  DVC Learning and Teaching Suzi Derbyshire will report to Provost Carol Dickenson

* reporting lines of the executive directors of the institutes for future environments and health and biomedical innovation move from the provost to DVC R Arun Sharma
