Excellence continues with succession in human resource department at Case Western Reserve University

University's vice president of human resources accepts new position in Texas, associate vice president to be promoted


After four years as Case Western Reserve University's vice president of human resources, Tony Kinslow has accepted the vice president of human resources position at the University of Texas, Arlington.

Case Western Reserve alumnae Carolyn Gregory, the university's associate vice president for human resources, will become the department's next vice president, effective July 1.

"I wish to congratulate Tony on his new position and thank him for his many contributions to Case Western Reserve University during the past four years," said Hossein Sadid, the university's chief financial and administrative officer. "Under Tony's leadership, our award-winning human resources department has become an even stronger steward of the university."

During Kinslow's tenure, Case Western Reserve has been recognized as a Best Place to Work in Northeast Ohio for three consecutive years; a regional leader in supplier diversity, receiving five different awards; and a College and University Professional Association (CUPA) best practice award winner for the employer assisted housing program. The university also has been recognized by CUPA for its shared services program.

Kinslow led Case Western Reserve's model Human Capital Management system implementation, which was completed on time and under budget, and he has been involved in development activities that have resulted in scholarship awards and new contacts for the School of Law, among other school and management centers at the university.

In addition, under Kinslow—with Gregory serving as a senior leader—the human resources department has saved more than $12 million in healthcare costs through restructure and cost containment while maintaining quality and affordable coverage for employees.

"I am delighted that Carolyn Gregory has accepted a promotion to vice president of human resources at Case Western Reserve University," Sadid said. "We are obviously excited and pleased to have Carolyn assume this critical role within our institution and provide continuity to our excellent program. She will be an outstanding leader for our human resources team."

Gregory, who received her EMBA degree from Case Western Reserve, has worked at the university for 12 years. She has more than 20 years experience in human resources. She previously worked for Oberlin College.
