INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis has appointed Layne Maloney as associate vice chancellor for Auxiliary Services effective May 4, IUPUI Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Dawn M. Rhodes announced.
Maloney, who currently serves as the vice president for operations and chief operating officer for the Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School, was hired after an extensive national search. Maloney will succeed Kate Julius, who is transitioning to be closer to her family in Ohio.
In her current role, Maloney has played an integral part in the law school’s mission and strategic planning process. Through solid financial planning, monitoring of budgets and reallocating funds based on new initiatives, she has been able to align facilities and auxiliary services at the law school with the university’s strategic plan. She also led the launch of two new Cooley Law School campus sites while simultaneously attending to the daily operations of the law school on the main campus.
As IUPUI’s associate vice chancellor for auxiliary services, Maloney will be charged with providing the vision, leadership and operational oversight for the unit that oversees IUPUI Dining Services, Campus Card Services, Barnes & Noble @ IUPUI, the IU Natatorium, Michael A. Carroll Track and Soccer Stadium, the Center for Young Children, Event Services, and Print and Mail Services.
“Layne’s leadership positions and her vast experience with negotiations, relationship building and operations will continue the momentum of growth and innovation that Auxiliary Services has seen in recent years,” Rhodes said.
Before her current position, Maloney served as the assistant to the president for facilities management and corporate projects at MacAllister Machinery, where she had senior-level responsibility for facilities, corporate planning and auxiliary services for the $1 billion Caterpillar dealership.
Maloney received her Bachelor of Business Administration degree in management with highest honors from Marian University. She is in the process of becoming a certified facility manager, the premier certification for experienced facility manager professionals, through the International Facility Management Association.
