Fajack, who appointed Pinkney, said he was the obvious choice for this position.
“His wealth of experience in higher education, a lot of time with the legislature — they’re one of our biggest funders so a knowledge of their inner workings is important — and also his time with general administration and time with the University and understanding and working with the general administration, but really his attention to detail, his dedication to this University and his ability to collaborate with a number of people,” he said.
Pinkney will work with Information Technology Services, UNC Health Care Administration, UNC General Administration among other campus communities, the press release said.
