Robert Gassel named assistant vice chancellor at UM-Dearborn

DEARBORN---Robert Gassel, director of financial services and budget at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, has been appointed assistant vice chancellor for finance and director of financial services and budget.

His appointment, which was effective May 1, was approved by the U-M Regents at their April meeting.

In addition to his financial and budget responsibilities, Gassel also supervises mail services, parking and vending operations.

Gassel graduated from the UM-Dearborn School of Management in 1974, and joined the financial operations staff on the Ann Arbor campus the same year. He returned to UM-Dearborn as assistant director of financial services in 1978 and was promoted to director in 1984. He lives in Canton.

In 2003, Gassel received the campus's Long-Term Achievement Award.

Gassel's promotion is due to two main factors, according to Robert Behrens, vice chancellor for business affairs. In part, it is due to the wider responsibilities Gassel has assumed in recent years. "And second, the new appointment reflects Bob's long term accomplishments in financial leadership and customer service," Behrens said.
