A top financial officer of Texas A&M University has resigned to become vice chancellor for finance for the University of North Texas System.Resistance is futile...you will be assimilated...
Terry Pankratz, vice president and chief financial officer, has worked at the 49,000-student university and within the A&M System that governs it for nearly 22 years.
Administrative changes announced in January appeared to lessen Pankratz' role.
In a series of moves that more closely aligned the flagship College Station campus with the A&M System, he was made to report directly to B.J. Crain, who is now the chief business officer for both the university and the A&M System. She reports both to Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin and A&M System Chancellor Mike McKinney.
A spokesman for Loftin, Jason Cook, said Crain will lead the university's Division of Finance.
"At this time," Cook wrote in an e-mail, "there are not any plans to fill Mr. Pankratz' position."
