Sheldon Flom has been named Linn-Benton Community College's new vice President of Finance and Operations, according to an announcement made Friday by the institution.
Flom takes over for Dave Henderson, who retired in December. He will begin his duties on Feb. 10.
"I am delighted that Sheldon is joining Linn-Benton Community College," LBCC President Greg Hamann in a press release. "He brings an ideal blend of experience as a business manager, commitment to higher education, and passion for student success to the table.”
