Brad Ives will leave his position as associate vice chancellor for campus enterprises and chief sustainability officer, according to an announcement from Vice Chancellor for Finance and Operations Jonathan Pruitt on Monday.
UNC Media Relations confirmed on Monday that Ives will be leaving the University.
Ives has served in this position since 2015. According to the UNC website, he provided oversight of the University’s Auxiliary Services, Energy Services, Transportation and Parking, Student Stores and Trademarks and Licensing during his tenure.
Various members of Pruitt's leadership team will manage the different aspects of Ives' job in an interim capacity, the announcement said.
Derek Kemp, associate vice chancellor for campus safety and risk management, will manage transportation and parking; Gordon Merklein, associate vice chancellor for real estate operations, will manage auxiliary services and trademarks and licensing; and Nate Knuffman, deputy vice chancellor for finance and operations, will manage energy services and the N.C. Policy Collaboratory.
Ives received the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association's 2018 Individual Energy Leader Award for his commitment to advancing clean energy in North Carolina.
"His work is recognized across campus, particularly with the launch of the UNC Three Zeros Environmental Initiative in 2016 and his work with the North Carolina Policy Collaboratory," Pruitt said in the email. "In his role he has also served UNC-Chapel Hill as a champion for affordability by generating more revenue for student scholarships from Campus Enterprises."
