Ann Wylie, the University of Maryland’s interim provost, will become the interim chief financial officer, university President Darryll Pines announced Monday.

Wylie has been the interim provost since January, following the resignation of Mary Ann Rankin. She will serve as interim chief financial officer until the university concludes its search for a permanent CFO and finance vice president.

In December, the university named Brian Burnett, formerly the University of Minnesota’s senior vice president for finance and operations, as the interim CFO. At the time, the university had paused its search for a permanent position.

The most recent permanent CFO, Paul Dworkis, left the university in November 2019. From then until last December, vice president for administration and finance Carlo Colella and the university’s “finance team” fulfilled the CFO’s responsibilities, a university spokesperson told The Diamondback in December.

Rice has served as the dean of the education college since 2017. She was previously set to start as provost on Aug. 11.
