From the AVP of Finance:
I am very pleased to announce that Kathleen Prunty will be joining us as Director of Acquisitions Management on Monday, March 26th. Kathleen has an impressive mix of CSU, and private sector experience. For the past 10 years, Kathleen has led Procurement and Support Services at the Pomona campus. Before joining the CSU, she held logistics, supply chain and sales positions in private industry. Kathleen received a BA in Organizational Studies from Pitzer College and she is a Certified Purchasing Manager.
Kathleen is well known throughout the CSU system. Having served in several officer positions with the Procurement & Support Services Officers Association, she is known as a strong leader and a highly regarded procurement professional. What impresses me most about Kathleen is her commitment to staff development and continuous learning; she regularly teaches courses in purchasing and negotiation for the CSU and the Western Association of College and University Business Officers (WACUBO). Kathleen has an engaging presence and a “bias to action” that will serve SJSU well.
Please join me in giving Kathleen a big Spartan welcome.
