Tech Welcomes New VP of Campus Services
As everyone eases into a new semester, Paul Strouts will be easing into his new position as vice president of Campus Services.
“I was at Florida State University (FSU) for nearly 19 years, and I knew it would take a special opportunity for me to consider leaving,” said Strouts, who started at Tech in late December. “However, when the Georgia Tech position appeared, I was totally intrigued. My visits here only confirmed that this was that special opportunity.”
Most recently, Strouts served as associate vice president for administration at FSU, where he oversaw a staff of more than 400 employees.
During his time at Florida State, Strouts doubled auxiliary revenues over a 12-year period, oversaw the expansion of food services from $8 million to $29 million, developed a partnership between Human Resources and the Dean of Faculties Office and implemented an online e-procurement system, among other things.
“Paul brings extensive experience with auxiliary enterprises, procurement and human resources, as well as a strong commitment to customer service and leadership through collaboration,” said Steve Swant, executive vice president for Administration and Finance. “The Campus Services team has a strong history of quality service and continuous improvement. Paul brings the vision and leadership that can help build on that rich legacy and help the Institute move forward in achieving our strategic goals.”
Before arriving at FSU, Strouts also held a variety of roles at Indiana University-Purdue University from 1982 to 1993, including director of public safety, purchasing and support services.
Strouts earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in public affairs from Indiana University in Fort Wayne, Ind.
In the weeks to come, the new vice president looks forward to meeting the Institute’s staff members and students.
“The people I’ve met thus far have been extraordinarily welcoming and seem to share a common appreciation for the campus and its heritage,” he added. “I look forward to contributing to this wonderful institution.”
