(LITTLE ROCK) Sept. 20, 2017 — University of Arkansas System President Dr. Donald R. Bobbitt has named longtime senior audit director Gina Terry as chief financial officer for the UA System.
Terry, the former senior regional audit director who joined the UA System in 2001, took over the role Sept. 1. Jacob Flournoy, chief audit executive, had served as the interim chief financial officer.
“Gina has an impressive background in finance and an impeccable reputation within her role as an audit professional and I think she is more than equipped to handle the challenges and duties her new role presents,” Bobbitt said. “We had many quality applicants in a national search to fill the role, but I am confident that the best candidate was right here already working alongside our many campuses, divisions and units.”
Terry has more than 35 years of professional finance and audit experience, including beginning her career in 1981 at Ernst & Young in Little Rock and Detroit, Mich., before working as a partner at Miller, England and Terry and as controller at a privately owned catalog company. She joined the internal audit department at the UA System in 2001 as an associate director and rose to the rank of senior regional auditor. Terry, a licensed CPA, is an honors graduate in accounting of the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.
