Gary Rahlfs, the former vice president of finance for the beverage and snack company PepsiCo will join UNT as the new vice chancellor of finance for UNT Systems in late March. He will serve as the university system’s chief financial officer, taking over from the interim Vice Chancellor of Finance, Bob Brown.

“I am a firm believer that people are what make a difference in any organization,” Rahlfs said. “I was very impressed with the leadership that I met during the hiring process, so I am most looking forward to getting to know the teams across the UNT System office, as well as at each university and campus.”

UNT officials interviewed about a dozen candidates for the position and viewed Rahlfs as the best candidate for the job.

“Gary wowed our search committee during the interview process,” UNT Chancellor Lesa Roe said. “He will assume leadership of a strong and experienced team that will compliment his strengths.”

Rahlfs described his interview experience as being very disciplined. He also said the rigorous search allowed him to see the high-caliber university leaders including Roe, President Neal Smatresk and UNT Regents.

Brown will continue to serve and assist with Rahlfs’ transition to his new role until May 2018.

“I am deeply grateful to Bob Brown for stepping in as interim vice chancellor for finance over the past four months,” Roe said. “He has tirelessly served our system, while also continuing to lead UNT’s financial organization in his day job. Bob’s leadership, financial expertise and steady hand during a time of transition have been invaluable, and his willingness to take on more truly defines the culture of teamwork and collaboration we are working to build at the UNT system.”

Rahlfs’ top priorities include continuing to build, “a high-performance team through recruiting, developing and retaining great talent,” he said.

Rahlfs said he is looking to lead the charge in providing high-quality service to UNT students and investing in certain areas that have a significant impact. Ralhfs will serve his first day with UNT Systems on March 26.
