The Reinhardt Leadership Team includes (from left) Dr. Roger Lee, Julie Fleming, David Leopard, Dr. Kina Mallard, Tim Norton, Dr. Mark Roberts and Bill Popp.
President Mallard has created a new senior management team to lead Reinhardt University. After her arrival in mid-May 2015, she promoted the Director of Athletics Bill Popp to the University’s Leadership team.
“This change reflects the importance of athletics to the health and future of the University,” Mallard said. She describes the group as “the best leadership team any president could hope for.”
Three vice presidents were in place when Mallard took the helm. They are: Julie C. Fleming, enrollment services; Dr. Roger R. Lee, student affairs and dean of students; and Dr. Mark A. Roberts, academic affairs. Tim Norton, advancement, was hired to follow JoEllen Bell Wilson ’61, and David R. Leopard, finance and administration, replaced Bob McKinnon. Both Wilson and McKinnon retired earlier in the year, and Mallard took part in selecting their successors.
Mallard is enthusiastic about the strengths and abilities of the University’s leadership team and its members. “A leader is only as strong as the team she works with,” she said. “I cannot imagine a more committed and competent team to join me at the helm steering Reinhardt into an exciting future.”
