Keller appointed VP of Finance and Admin.

Adam Keller was appointed the Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration last week by College President James Wright. Keller will assume the role of the College's chief financial officer on July 1.

Keller, currently the acting vice president and treasurer, has been an administrator at the College since 1978, when he served as a financial officer in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at the Dartmouth Medical School.

There, he became the Chief Financial Officer in 1991 and the Associate Dean and Chief Operations Officer in 1995.

Graduating from Harvard University in 1973, Keller received his master of public health degree from the University of Minnesota in 1981, and has also been active in the field of public health, serving as an instructor in community and family medicine since 1979 and writing numerous papers.

At the Medical School, Keller aided in the development of the Department of Community and Family Medicine into one of the preeminent departments of its kind in the nation.

His work has also helped support the Center for the Evaluative Clinical Sciences and expand the infrastructure available for research and the success of the faculty.

As executive director of the nationally recognized Primary Care COOP Project, a network of primary care physicians in Vermont and New Hampshire who collaborate on research, he was a co-investigator on a project designed to help doctors improve cancer prevention.

Keller's career led President Wright to comment that he "has made tremendous contributions to the Dartmouth Medical School and College over the past 25 years" in a press release issued after Keller's appointment.

Keller is enthusiastic about his new position. "I envision the role of the executive vice president as helping to enrich the learning opportunities for students and to expand support for the faculty," he said.

"I want to help create an environment that promotes discovery, and I want to help recognize the many contributions of the staff at Dartmouth," he continued.

Keller, who also works with the State of New Hampshire Community Grants Program, lives in Thetford, Vermont, where he was the former chair of the Board of School Directors.
