I am pleased to announce the appointment of Barry Oh as our new Associate Controller in Accounting & Fiscal Services. Barry officially started in his new role in June. In this important leadership position, Barry will help guide our organization and serve as a key strategic partner for the campus financial community. Barry will also assist me with managing our large organization – the Accounts Payable, Financial Management Support, Financial Cost Analysis, and General Accounting teams all report to him.
Barry comes to us from the Hacienda La Puente Unified School District where he was Director of Fiscal Services. In that role, Barry led a team of 30 employees, providing financial leadership to 35 schools and facilities while managing financial reporting to the Los Angeles County Office of Education. Prior to working in education, Barry was a controller and finance director in the aerospace industry. He is a certified public accountant, earned his MBA from the USC Marshall School of Business, and is an alumnus of UCLA from which he graduated with a B.A. in economics.
Like the rest of the Accounting Department, Barry will be primarily working from home until we return to campus. The best way to reach him for now is at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I additionally wanted to share the good news that Aurora Orozco has joined the Accounting & Fiscal Services team as our new Assistant Director of Payroll. In her new role, Aurora will continue to lead the Payroll Operations team and work in partnership with the Payroll Systems team led by Kristina Khederlarian. Both Aurora and Kristina will report directly to me.
Aurora has been on loan from the UCPath Center since October to assist in the implementation of UCPath, and she contributed significantly to the success of that project. With more than 29 years of experience providing UC central payroll services and more than seven years of experience working with UCPath, Aurora brings a strong portfolio of skills, knowledge, and leadership to the Payroll team.
Now that Aurora is an employee of UCI, her primary email address has changed. Going forward, please contact her at email@example.com rather than her old UCOP email address.
Please join me in welcoming Barry and Aurora to our team and the UCI community!
