Virginia Tech's Executive Vice President Retiring

January 9, 2008

(AP) Virginia Tech's executive vice president and chief operating officer is retiring.

The university said in a news release that Jim Hyatt is leaving, effective Wednesday. He has been in his job since July 2004. The 58-year-old Hyatt previously held positions with the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Maryland, and has written a number of books on higher education financial management.

Tech has no immediate plans to fill Hyatt's position, and President Charles Steger said he is looking for ways to streamline his management team in light of state budget cuts.

Hyatt is the third high-ranking Tech official to leave the university in 14 months.
