Janet Hayden Named Executive Director for Risk Management and Compliance Oversight
Michigan Technological University President Glenn Mroz announced that Janet Hayden, the University’s director of risk management, has been named executive director for risk management and compliance oversight.
The appointment was effective July 1. The new role will primarily focus on two important areas—risk management and compliance oversight.
In risk management, Hayden will continue to implement effective risk financing, loss control and claims management. In addition, she will provide leadership in continuing to build and strengthen the University’s overall compliance oversight.
In her newly-expanded position, Hayden will now oversee the monitoring efforts to ensure the University is in compliance with a broad spectrum of legal, regulatory and accreditation related obligations.
Mroz says the goal of integrating risk management and compliance oversight under one umbrella is to operate more efficiently, enable effective information sharing, report activities more effectively, and reduce redundancy and overlap.
Mroz says Hayden has proven she is uniquely qualified for new role. “With more than 20 years in the role of risk manager Janet has certainly proved herself capable of executing the duties of this position. She brings a wealth of experience and professionalism.”
Calling it an “exciting opportunity,” Hayden is embracing her expanded role.
“I look forward to working with the campus community to address the ever-changing risk and compliance landscape,” she says.
Hayden has served on the Michigan Universities Self-Insurance Corporation’s (MUSIC) board of directors since 1996 and currently serves as MUSIC’s vice president, sitting on various committees. She will assume the organization’s presidency next month.
She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Western Michigan University and is a certified risk manager.
Hayden will report to Vice President for Administration Ellen Horsch.
