By Sarah Shannon

Sept. 13, 2012

Cleveland State University has made some new additions for the upcoming school year in administration, the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, and the Monte Ahuja College of Business.

Appointed as the new Assistant Vice President of Human Resources, Jesse Drucker will serve as the Chief Negotiator. Part of the HR mission statement at CSU is to attract and retain innovative and diverse employees. They held this mission in the hiring of Drucker.

He has experience in labor relations at the University of California San Francisco and most recently worked at Kaiser Permanente in Fresno, CA.

“Jesse was selected for the position not only because of his work history,” Stephanie McHenry, Vice President of Business Affairs and Finance, said, “But also because of his enthusiastic desire to enhance our Human Resources function.”

Drucker will be responsible for holding true part of the HR mission statement of establishing and maintaining partnerships with CSU employees, departments and management to ensure the university mission is met through and being a problem solver by providing assistance as needed in a professional and confidential matter for the employees of CSU.

In the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Paul Wolansky has been appointed as the Director of Advancement.

Wolansky is a Cleveland native, attending high school in the city and even CSU at one point. He received his bachelor’s degree from Baldwin Wallace University and his Masters from Bowling Green State University. Wolansky’s past jobs include being the Director of Campus Activities and Associate Director of Norris University Center at Northwestern University, the Director of Alumni outreach and Education at Otterbien University, and most recently the Senior Director of Alumni Relations at Colorado State University.

He will be working with the dean of CLASS and Division of University Advancement to develop fundraising and alumni programs within CLASS and make sure the programs follow through.

Nate Ward has been appointed the Director of the International Trade Assistance Center (ITAC) of the Monte Ahuja College of Business.

Ward received his MA from McGill University of Montreal and his International MBA from Baldwin Wallace University. His international experience entails manufacturing and banking as well as diverse cultural and linguistic knowledge. Having over seven years of experience in sales, logistics, marketing, pricing, research, and product development—all with an international focus—Ward will implement this knowledge in his new position and share it with his fellow Vikings.

His previous positions include working with international money transfers at Charter One Bank and the International Consumer Products Department at Vitamix Corporation.

Many fresh faces are gracing the campus of CSU. Each one with their own diverse backgrounds and knowledge that will only benefit the university as a whole.
