President McGee announces new Vice President for Finance

RSS FeedQuincy, MA Jan. 8, 2007 - I am pleased to announce the appointment of Jan Weisen as Vice President for Finance. Jan has served ENC as assistant professor in the business department since January 2006. Along with teaching courses in marketing, global management, managerial accounting, money and banking, he has served as the Business Club advisor and worked with the Development Office in planning the Warren Business Forum.

Jan earned a bachelor of arts in business administration with a marketing major and an economics minor from Eastern Washington University in 1976 and a master’s in hospital and health-care administration from the University of Iowa in 1982. He attended Northwest Nazarene University from 1971 to 1973 and enrolled in additional courses within the Commercial Art Program at Spokane Community College in 1974.

From 1982 to 1991 Jan served on the administrative staff at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Wash. managing a $13 million budget as Director of the Emergency Department, the Trauma Center and Heartflite, and the Air Ambulance Service. Here his primary responsibilities included working with 125 medical, nursing, secretarial and flight personnel to establish Sacred Heart as the premier provider of emergency services in the Inland Northwest.

In addition to a wealth of financial and administrative experience, Jan also brings a heart for service to the church. Beginning in 1991 Jan left hospital administration to serve the Church of the Nazarene for 15 years as a missionary in several world areas including the Caribbean, Eurasia, and Africa. While serving as a missionary he assumed a wide variety of responsibilities, some of the most notable consisting of transitioning and computerizing regional financial structures, working with multiple currency budgets in the German and Swiss banking systems, administrative advising at both the Raleigh Fitkin Memorial Hospital in Swaziland and the Romanian missionary team, and communications coordination including expertise with the mediums of radio, television/video and the internet. A major highlight of his time on the mission field was working with department managers and administrative teams to change the operational decision making model that enabled the missionary hospital to balance their budgets and complete the fiscal year with a surplus for the first time in decades.

Jan’s work history and service to the church demonstrate that he is a servant leader. Please join me in welcoming Jan into his new assignment at ENC.
