UCA hires Kelley Erstine as chief of staff

Posted By on Wed, Mar 27, 2013 at 12:16 PM

Big hire announced at the University of Central Arkansas:

University of Central Arkansas President Tom Courtway announced today that Kelley Erstine will join the UCA executive staff, effective July 1, 2013 as Chief of Staff.

A native of Sheridan, Ark, Erstine is a 1979 graduate of UCA with a degree in journalism. Previously, he served UCA as a member of the University’s Board of Trustees, and also served as Vice President for Institutional Advancement. In his new position with UCA, his salary will be $170,000 per year.

“Kelley Erstine knows the University of Central Arkansas very well,” Courtway said. “He is well known throughout the State of Arkansas and this region of the country, and is a proven administrator. He is thoroughly committed to the University of Central Arkansas, and he and his wife, Leslie, are very excited to have the opportunity to return to Arkansas to live and work. He will be a valuable asset to UCA as we continue to move forward. I am very pleased he has agreed to return to UCA.”

Since July 2008, Erstine has served as the chief executive officer of the Independent Insurance Agents of North Carolina, a state trade association representing approximately 1,000 independent insurance agencies
.

The tenure of the previous chief of staff, Jack Gillean, ended badly, you might recall. I also recall Erstine's previous stints at UCA including overseeing the UCA Foundation, which had at least a tangential role in the tangled financial life of former President Lu Hardin.
