Ng appointed VP for finance and administration
Donna Ng, a senior financial and administrative executive with extensive experience in higher education and non-profit organizations, has been appointed Skidmore’s next vice president for finance and administration and treasurer, effective Oct. 1.
Ng, who was selected after a national search, is currently the senior vice president for finance and administration at Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts and previously vice president for business affairs and treasurer at Scripps College in Claremont, California. Her experience includes overseeing accounting, budgets, investments, purchasing, human resources, facilities, grounds, public safety, real estate, emergency preparedness, dining services and information technology.
“We enthusiastically welcome Donna Ng to the Skidmore community,” said Skidmore President Philip A. Glotzbach. “The depth and breadth of her leadership, finance and business administration experience within the higher education and non-profit industries will serve the College well. Donna’s budgeting and financial planning expertise will help continue to guide Skidmore’s strong financial standing as we move forward with implementation of important college-wide initiatives, including construction of the Center for Integrated Sciences, the largest single construction project ever undertaken at Skidmore.”
“I am eager to continue ensuring Skidmore’s financial stability and fully implementing the strategic plan through collaboration with the entire community, while working closely with the president, the cabinet, my team and the board of trustees,” Ng said.
Prior to joining Simmons and Scripps, Ng served as senior associate provost for budget and planning at Wellesley College in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and budget director at Babson College, also in Wellesley. She also served as director of finance and chief information officer for a hospital network and controller for a hospital and an energy services company. She began her professional career at KPMG, a national public accounting firm, and received a certified public accountant (CPA) license.
Ng earned a master’s degree in business administration from Babson College and a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Boston College.
Ng will succeed Mike West, who will retire on Aug. 31 after 14 years at Skidmore.
