La Trobe U restructure rolls on

Speed to pick up the pace for regional campuses

VC John Dewar tells staff that Provost Rob Pike’s work is done in creating the university transformation plan and it is time for CFO Mark Smith to take over as Chief Transformation Officer, to oversee business plans and track progress on savings, through to June.

Natalie MacDonald (VP strategy) and Richard Speed (DVC International) also pick up new responsibilities.

Ms MacDonald takes over digital transformation.

Professor Speed picks up a former brief for regional campuses, plus responsibility for international and domestic student recruitment. This move “reflects the important role of our regional campuses” plus … “our ambition to attract more international students” to them
