Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Vice Chancellor for Administration Rich Walker has named Donna Meyer as interim director of facilities management.
Meyer, of Godfrey, has served as associate director of facilities management since 2012. She joined the SIUE staff after gaining extensive experience during her 24-year tenure with American Water Company of Illinois serving as a manager, superintendent and engineer.
“Donna has a personal commitment to quality in everything she does,” Walker said. “We recognize and appreciate her work with a successful team and her willingness to continue her dedication to the faculty, staff and students at SIUE.”
“I want to thank Vice Chancellor for Administration Rich Walker and Chancellor Randy Pembrook for the opportunity to serve as interim director of facilities management,” Meyer said. “I look forward to leading a great facilities management team in support of the university and its mission. There are many challenges in front of us as we approach fiscal year 18 and I am eager to tackle those challenges and continue to provide a great environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors.”
A Bartelso native, Meyer earned a bachelor’s in civil engineering in 1987 from SIUE’s School of Engineering.
Meyer assumes the responsibilities of former director Paul Fuligni, who has accepted a position with Iowa State University. A national search will begin soon.
