In order to expand the financial oversight of its three member-institutions, the Nebraska State College System posted a vacancy announcement for a new position, director of system-wide accounting, in January.
After the search committee began the application review in February, Carolyn Murphy, NSCS vice-chancellor for Finance and Administration, said Tuesday afternoon that the System had hired someone for the position.
“We have hired an individual for the position. Her name is Amy Hock, and she will be starting on Monday, April 16,” Murphy said.
Hock was hired from a pool of 10 applicants, according to Murphy.
Hock is currently one of three senior auditors-in-charge with the Nebraska Auditor of Public Account’s office. According to the Nebraska Department of Administrative Services, Hock has been with the APA’s office since 2004.
Murphy said Hock’s starting salary is $62,377.
