UCSF Names New Senior Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration

UC San Francisco has appointed Paul Jenny, a seasoned administrator with two decades of experience in academic finance and operations, including within the UC system, as its new Senior Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration.

Jenny takes on a key role on UCSF’s executive leadership team, reporting directly to the chancellor as the chief financial and chief operating officer of the campus.

His appointment, which follows a year-long national search, was approved June 7, 2016, by UC President Janet Napolitano, on the recommendation of UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood , MBBS, and is effective June 22, 2016.

“Paul brings exceptional strategic leadership and financial experience to the UCSF campus,” Hawgood said. “With his strong performance at the University of Washington, and before that at UC Berkeley, he is extremely well suited to help guide UCSF as we make day-to-day and long-term financial decisions, all aimed at supporting our missions of patient care, education, research and community service.

Financial advisers fired and hired again and again


He was fired from one company, then another, then another. And still Anthony Diaz continued handling other people’s money.

The smooth-talking securities salesman affiliated with 11 different investment firms in 15 years, getting booted from five of them and resigning from another amid customer complaints and rules infractions. Yet his checkered employment history never seemed to slow him down on his way to earning millions by pushing high-fee, high-risk “alternative investments.”

Now under federal criminal indictment for fraud — he has pleaded not guilty — and with dozens of former clients lodging complaints, Diaz illustrates what can go wrong when investment firms hire problem brokers.

It happens with alarming frequency. An academic study from March found that 15 to 20 percent of the brokers at some of the largest financial services firms in the country, including one that employed Diaz, have disciplinary records. Moreover, nearly half of financial advisers fired for misconduct find a new job in the industry within a year — and are at greater risk of re-offending, according to researchers at the universities of Chicago and Minnesota.

Has anyone had a phone call from a group called Affiliated Financial Services?

They claim to be able to reduce my interest rate on my credit card by a one time payment of $995. It sounds like fraud to me, but I need a little bit of guidance. Help?
