Portland State President Wim Wiewel has appointed Dr. Kevin Reynolds as vice president for Finance and Administration after a successful three-month term as interim vice president.

"Kevin Reynolds brings deep knowledge of PSU and broad leadership experience that has made him widely respected across campus," President Wiewel said.

Reynolds has served several key roles in his nine years at PSU, including Chemistry Department chair, interim dean of the School of Extended Studies and vice provost for Budget Planning and Internationalization in the Office of Academic Affairs.

"In my research and administrative roles, I have seen how our faculty and staff are committed to the mission and values of PSU and our engagement with the city of Portland," Reynolds said.

He has worked with the president's leadership team to develop long-term budget planning for PSU's schools and colleges and has been involved in construction projects such as the new Collaborative Life Sciences Building. He also maintains an active chemistry research program funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Reynolds holds bachelor's and doctoral degrees in chemistry from the University of Southampton, England. Before coming to PSU in 2005, he was on the faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University and University of Maryland.

"I am delighted and honored to be given this opportunity to serve the university," he said.
