Detampel is choice as UW-Green Bay controller

SuAnn K. Detampel has been named controller for the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

She had served in the position on an interim basis since March 2012 when she took over from Kelly J. Franz upon his promotion to new duties as the University’s Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance.

Detampel was previously assistant controller and budget officer. She joined UW-Green Bay as a senior accountant in 2001.

In her new position, Detampel oversees the Controller’s Office and takes a supervisory role in monitoring the University’s revenue collections, expenditures and cash management with an institutional budget exceeding $120 million annually. She is responsible for directing financial operations including personnel in accounting, financial reporting, purchasing and accounts payable and receivable. She also advises UW-Green Bay administration and offices campuswide on state, federal and university accounting policies and procedures, and serves as a liaison to UW System on issues related to budget, balance sheet and fiscal management.

Detampel is a certified public accountant who received her bachelor of business administration degree in accounting from UW-Whitewater in 1994. She worked three years as a staff accountant and auditor with the Madison firm of McGladrey & Pullen, and spent four years as a financial analyst with the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation, Inc., before joining the UW-Green Bay staff.

“I am pleased that SuAnn has agreed to accept this new assignment as University Controller,” Franz said, in announcing the appointment. “Her background in accounting and budget management, and extensive range of experience with UW-Green Bay make her well-qualified for this position.”
