Gerald Hector is past Vice President for Finance and Administration at Ithaca College. In part one of our conversation last week, Gerald shared his insights on the importance of the CBO-CIO relationship, and we expected that to be the extent of our conversation. Then he surprised us with a fantastic pivot. In part two, we take on the power of storytelling in moving the institutional mission forward. From using metaphor to explain complex financial subjects, to his "Dollars & $ence" meetings, now central to his mission around campus financial leadership, Gerald's input is a valuable perspective far beyond his role as a technical finance leader.

Effective August 1, Hector has taken on the role of vice president for finance and administration at Cornell University.
