A veteran financial officer with more than 20 years of experience in higher education, Stephen Taksar assumed the post of vice president for finance and administration in August. He replaces William Crangle, who announced his retirement last autumn and now oversees the University’s environmental sustainability efforts.
A native New Englander, Taksar grew up in Enfield, CT, and earned his bachelor’s degree at Central Connecticut State University, his Master of Education at Northeastern University, and his MBA at Providence College. Most recently he was vice chancellor for administration and finance at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany, IN. Previously, he served as chief operations officer at Babson College’s School of Executive Education in Wellesley, MA; assistant vice president of finance and operations at Curry College in Milton, MA; and business manager at Wheaton College, Norton, MA.
“Plymouth State University aligns very well with my core values as a person and a professional,” Taksar says. “It is my hope and belief that I will make a positive difference, not only at Plymouth State, but within the local community. The future looks very bright for Plymouth and I am excited to be a part of the leadership team to help achieve its highest dreams and aspirations.”
