Dr. Chris Dalton

Dr. Chris Dalton (center) enjoys a laugh with General Counsel Tom Trimboli (left) and Dr. Heinz Bulmahn, dean of the Graduate College, over the "$30 bills" created to honor his 30 years at BGSU.

BGSU has benefited from Dalton's quiet diligence

Many on campus may be surprised to learn that, before taking the reins of the University budget, Dr. Chris Dalton was a photochemist studying the interaction of light and matter. But it fits, since in his 20 years of overseeing the budget, he has focused a veritable “laser beam” on BGSU’s finances, and has brought all the analytical skills of the chemist to bear on finding the necessary resources and keeping the University in good financial shape.

After nearly 30 years at BGSU, Dalton will step down from his position as senior vice president for finance and administration on May 31, when new CFO Sherri Stoll arrives on campus. He will still be here through midsummer, however, to help her make the transition into the job before his official retirement, and may return to work part time on special projects in the fall.

And then will end years of 70-hour workweeks, of nights and weekends at the office. Over the years, his wife, Ellen, coordinator of budgets in the College of Musical Arts, and daughter, Kathryn, “have been very good about sharing me,” he said, adding, “It’s a good time to retire.”
