CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The University of Virginia has named Johns Hopkins’ vice president for finance Michael Strine as its next executive vice president and chief operating officer.
U.Va. officials said Thursday that Strine will start his job July 1. He will succeed Leonard Sandridge, who is retiring after a 44-year career at the university.
The Board of Visitors approved Strine, 45, as an officer of the board at a special meeting Thursday. The board will officially vote on his appointment next month.
Strine has worked at Johns Hopkins since 2008 and oversees its $4 billion operating budget and other areas.
He’ll oversee U.Va.’s financial affairs, as well as other key operational and administrative areas, including human resources, facilities, real estate and public safety.
