PHILADELPHIA -- Stephen D. Golding will become vice president of finance and treasurer at the University of Pennsylvania on Feb. 1.
In making the announcement, Penn Executive Vice President Craig Carnaroli said, “Penn will benefit in many ways from Stephen Golding's expertise in finance-system implementation and his excellent track record of managing large and complex organizations. We are thrilled to bring on board a proven leader with deep financial management experience from across the non-profit, education and health-care fields.”
Golding has served as the executive director of financial affairs at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine since 1991, a position which included academic, research and clinical activities for more than 30 departments, the medical school’s administrative and support functions.
In addition to fiscal oversight, Golding directed financial strategy for information systems, capital and facilities planning, the acquisition of a $70 million academic physician practice and the Hopkins One Initiative, which replaced major business systems across the university, including finance, human resources, payroll, supply chain, accounts payable and capital projects. He developed a financial plan that moved the medical school from operating deficits to sustained surpluses for the past eight years.
Golding, who has also served in top financial-management positions for Amtrak, earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, N.Y., and an MBA from the University of Rochester’s Graduate School of Management.
