Ohio State ATI Director Search Committee

Dear Ohio State ATI Colleagues,

As I have previously shared, we are moving forward with the search for the next Director of Ohio State ATI with hopes having an individual identified sometime late summer or early fall.  Charles Goebel, Assistant Director of the School of Environment and Natural Resources and Carol Anelli, Associate Chair, Department of Entomology have agreed to serve as co-chairs of the search committee.  Members of the committee are:

Jonathan Witter

Kim Hostetler

Kim Sayers

Terry Lanker

Doug Foxx

Rhonda Billman

Brian Lower

Jesisca Suagee Bedore

Dave Dietrich

Susie Whittington

Kathy Lechman, ex-officio

We have retained the services of Baker and Associates, LLC to serve as our executive search firm for this important position and I know they are excited to begin actively working to identify candidates. Ryan Schmiesing, Sr. Administrative Officer will be working with the committee co-chairs and Martin Baker to develop the process and timeframe of engaging the search committee so that they may begin their work.

As the formal search process gets underway, you will be asked and encouraged to identify potential candidates from your network of peers and colleagues.  I would encourage you to take the time now to begin thinking about who you might nominate once you have an opportunity to review the position profile that will be developed as part of this process.
