Giovina Lloyd, who has been acting vice president for Business and Finance at Alfred University (AU) since July 1, 2008, has been named to the post on a permanent basis.

Her appointment, which is jointly made by President Charles M. Edmondson and the AU Board of Trustees, was announced at the board’s meeting last month.

“I am delighted to make this appointment,” said Edmondson. “Ms. Lloyd has proven herself to be highly competent guiding our finances during some of the most challenging economic times in higher education.”

“These are challenging times for everyone in higher education, but fortunately, I have a great group of colleagues with whom I have worked for several years,” Lloyd said. “I am confident we can introduce greater efficiency and consistency within our operations with a focus on protecting the financial integrity of the institution. I look forward to working with the staff and others across campus in this new role.”

It helps that she had extensive day-to-day knowledge of the business and finance division prior to her appointment as vice president.

As assistant vice president, Lloyd was responsible for the institution’s financial modeling and budget forecasting and analysis. For nearly 10 years she had worked in a supporting role to the Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees as well as the Board’s Facilities and Grounds Committee.

She had direct oversight of risk management, contracts, and several auxiliary operations at the University. A 1996 graduate of Alfred University with a B.S. in Business Administration, Lloyd earned her M.B.A. from AU’s College of Business as well.
She joined Alfred University administration in July 1999 as a special assistant to the vice president for business and finance, a position that evolved into director of budget forecasting and analysis, and then into assistant vice president for business and finance.

Lloyd was named acting vice president July 1, 2008, when her predecessor resigned.

As vice president for business and finance, Lloyd serves as the University’s chief financial officer and treasurer. She has administrative oversight for the departments of human resources, including payroll, facilities management, business services, which encompasses accounting, purchasing, student service center and research accounting, environmental health and safety, insurance and risk management, and auxiliary operations (bookstore and Saxon Inn.)

Prior to coming to Alfred University, Lloyd worked as a cost analyst for Alstom Transportation, Inc., and a staff accountant/financial analyst for Dresser-Rand.

She is a member of the National Association of College and University Business Officers, the Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers, and the New York College and University Risk Management Group, serving as a member of its board of directors.

She is married to Todd Giglio and they have an 18-month old daughter, Gianna.
