ANNE SWEENEY-HOY, Stanford’s chief ethics and compliance officer, has been appointed senior associate vice president of finance and leader of the Financial Management Services (FMS) organization. She succeeds SUSAN CALANDRA, who is retiring after 25 years at Stanford.
The announcement of Sweeney-Hoy’s appointment was made by RANDY LIVINGSTON, vice president for business affairs, chief financial officer and university liaison for Stanford Medicine. Sweeney-Hoy will begin her new role Feb. 1. She was selected after a national search and by a search committee made up of faculty, staff and a trustee.
Sweeney-Hoy will oversee FMS, an organization with about 200 staff members and an annual budget of $40 million. FMS includes the Controller’s Office, the Treasurer’s Office, Procurement Services, Global Business Services and Financial Management Consulting and Support.
“Anne brings an outstanding track record of leadership and change management in her 14 years at Stanford,” Livingston said. “She vastly improved financial reporting, helped stabilize the Oracle Financials system and has partnered effectively with staff across the university. She was an early participant in Business Affairs’ talent development program and was instrumental in creating the Financial Management Academy.”
Sweeney-Hoy joined Stanford in 2004 as an Oracle systems specialist. She was subsequently promoted to director of financial information and reporting systems and senior director of business architecture, support and enablement within FMS. In early 2018, she joined the Office of the Chief Risk Officer as chief ethics and compliance officer, where she has led efforts to enhance awareness of the university’s Code of Conduct and chaired the Ethics, Compliance and ERM Steering Committee. Before joining Stanford, Sweeney-Hoy worked with Booz, Allen & Hamilton and Bearing Point as a financial systems consultant.
“I’m delighted with the decision and honored to serve,” Sweeney-Hoy said. “I’m looking forward to returning to FMS and working with such an amazing organization.”
“I’m thrilled that Anne will be leading FMS,” Calandra said. “She has a deep understanding of the Stanford environment and has proven her ability to balance controls/compliance with service and support of the university community. Her passion for financial management and commitment to the university make her uniquely qualified to lead the FMS team in the years ahead.”
