Folt announces interim leadership in human resources, Equal Opportunity/ADA offices

Chancellor Carol Folt on Friday announced personnel changes in the Office of Human Resources and the Equal Opportunity/ADA Office.

Brenda Malone, the vice chancellor for human resources and interim director for the EO/ADA Office, announced last month that she is leaving Carolina at the end of the year.

Matthew S. Brody, associate vice chancellor for human resources, has agreed to provide leadership and oversight to the Office of Human Resources as part of his current role, Folt said in an email to the Carolina community. Brody joined Carolina in 2002 after serving in various roles at MIT and Duke University. Prior to his current position, Brody served as assistant provost for academic personnel and as a senior director in OHR.

Jayne Grandes, associate director for investigations and compliance reporting in the EO/ADA Office, will serve as interim director of that unit. She will report to Brody during the interim period. Grandes came to UNC-Chapel Hill from Rutgers University, where she was director of the Office of Employment Equality.

“I want to express my appreciation to both Matt Brody and Jayne Grandes for agreeing to lead these important offices until permanent leadership is named,” Folt said.
