With former Executive Associate to the President Kim Weddle now serving as director of development, the university has hired Missouri Western alumna Connie Brock to fill the position.
Brock has taken over the responsibilities of supervising the operations of the office of the president, and will also serve as secretary to the board of governor’s.
Brock has earned a certificate of business from Missouri Western and has years of experience in administration.
Most recently, Brock has done administrative work for Heartland (now Mosaic Life Care). She has also worked for around 14 years for loan servicing businesses Trimus Financial Services and Systems & Service Technologies, both of St. Joseph, as well as 12 years doing administrative work for the president of Fermenta Animal Health Company.
In a press released posted on Western’s website, President Robert Vartabedian expressed his excitement for the new hire.
“Connie has the combination of skills and experience that will make her a valuable asset to the Missouri Western campus,” Vartabedian said. “I’m looking forward to working with her.”
Brock explained that she is happy to be back at her alma mater, especially with the centennial celebration approaching.
“I am a graduate of Missouri Western and thought it would be an exciting place to come back to,” Brock said. “I’m anxious to work with the faculty, staff and students.”
