Jay Anhorn, assistant director of student activities at Coastal Carolina University, will begin working as director of Greek affairs March 7.
The position became vacant in October after former Director of Greek Affairs Ron Binder retired.
Interim Director Aaron Nelson will continue working until March 9, so he and Anhorn will have three days to work together.
Nelson will be leaving to take a new job as the executive director of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce.
Associate Vice Chancellor Cindy Wolf Johnson, who headed the search committee, said the search was very difficult because she had very specific qualities she was looking for in the candidates. "We were looking for somebody who could work extra well with students and with a good understanding of Greek life,"she said.
Wolf Johnson said the decision was made about two weeks ago.
Katie McMahon, the president of Pi Beta Phi, also said she will look for certain characteristics in the new director.
She said the Greek community needs "someone who's very open to suggestions and someone who has strong communication with all the presidents."
Wolf Johnson said Anhorn will work with Greek students on both a national level and a local level.
