Byron Dobson of Tallahassee Democrat reports: Florida A&M University has hired former Morehouse College administrator Alan D. Robertson as its new chief financial officer and vice president of finance and administration.
Robertson, a CPA, served as senior vice president for business and finance and CFO at Morehouse April 2013-November 2018. He most recently worked as a consultant for Morehouse’s Division of Business and Finance since leaving its CFO post.
In January, he was named one of three finalists to be interviewed for the presidency of Bethune-Cookman University, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported. Another candidate, E. LaBrent Chrite, got that job.
In March, Robertson was a candidate for Western Illinois University’s vice president of administrative services post. He begins Jan. 1 at FAMU.
His appointment marks the third person to serve in the key leadership post since June, when Wanda Ford resigned after an internal audit showed the university had been using unauthorized auxiliary funds to cover expenses in its athletics department until at least fall 2016.
