Michelle Quinn is expected to soon join Colorado Mesa University based in Grand Junction as vice president of finance and administration and chief financial officer.

Quinn is scheduled to join the CMU leadership team starting July 1. She will bring to her duties more than 30 years of experience in higher education fiscal policy, including service as CFO of the University of Northern Colorado.

Quinn will succeed Laura Glatt, who worked as CFO for the past six years.

It’s an exciting time to be a Maverick, and I can’t wait to contribute my financial expertise, leadership experience and enthusiasm to President Marshall’s team.”
