Vice President Kathy Brown recently announced some key leadership changes within the Office of Human Resources that will affect the Human Resources Management System Upgrade, as well as the larger Enterprise Systems Upgrade Program (ESUP). Beginning Aug. 11, Kelly Krattiger will provide OHR’s interim leadership for ESUP, and Laura Negrini will serve as the interim lead for OHR’s Operations group.

The leadership changes follow the recent announcement that Lori Lamb, OHR Director of Operations, is leaving the University to become Vice Chancellor for Human Resources at the California State University system. Her last day at the University will be August 8th.

Brown praised Lamb’s leadership for OHR and ESUP, noting that the project remains on budget and on time for a scheduled April 2015* launch. She said the Office of Human Resources is fortunate to have talented and experienced team members who can immediately step up to continue the project’s momentum and success. She said she has promised her full support to OHR’s interim leaders, and that she plans to increase her involvement in ESUP.

“While we’ll miss Lori and her many contributions, we have a terrific team in place and some very capable leaders,” Brown said. “I know that Kelly and Laura will step right in and do a tremendous job, and I’m looking forward to working more closely with them, as well as other OHR and ESUP team members.”

Lamb said she’s confident that the HRMS and ESUP teams will continue making steady progress, and that the planned April launch of the PeopleSoft upgrade will be successful. She said she’ll miss her colleagues, but that the opportunity to be the chief human resources officer for the California State University system was too great an opportunity to pass up. And her move to Long Beach will put her closer to family in Arizona and Washington state.

“We have a terrific team in place that’s doing amazing work,” Lamb said. “With the development work more than 95 percent complete and the project moving into a different phase, this is a good time for a transition. And I know the ESUP project is in very good hands.”
