It is with a mix of delight and regret that we announce that NAEP Board Member Denise Finn, CPPO, C.P.M., CPPB, is leaving the higher education field to accept a position with the Lee County Port Authority as a Purchasing Manager, leading the team at the Southwest Florida International Airport. Denise tells NAEP that it has been a long-term goal of her family to move to the beach and now they are able to do so. As of June 24, 2016 she is leaving the University of Kentucky, Lexington, where she served as Associate Director, Purchasing Division.
Denise has been an active member of NAEP (NAEB) for sixteen years, having served on/chaired both the Membership and Professional Development Committees. She has also served on two host committees, her first for the NAEP Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, while employed at Yavapai Community College, and in 2014 she co-chaired for the Louisville conference. She volunteered to be a first-time attendee leader for many years and has mentored numerous Members, assisting them with certification, continuing education, networking and how to move forward in their careers. Denise served on the NAEP Board of Directors for the last two years, most recently in the office of Senior Vice President for 2016/2017.
Denise Finn invites anyone who would like to keep in touch to look her up on LinkedIn or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
