Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has promoted Matthew Davis to vice president for finance and Megan Elliott to vice president for human and environmental services.

Davis has been with the institute since March of 2010, when he started as controller. He served as interim vice president for finance from 2012 until 2013 and associate vice president for finance from 2013 to 2018. Davis began his career by managing a small independent bookstore, then held financial management positions in the homeowner’s association management industry and, later, at a small oil refinery in Texas. A certified public accountant, he has a bachelor’s degree in business management and marketing from Indiana Wesleyan University and a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Elliott, who joined the institute in July as senior director of human resources, will now be overseeing not only human resources but also Rose-Hulman’s public safety and environmental health/safety and custodial services operations, along with the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and Office of Professional and Organizational Development. A former senior director of human resources for the institute, Elliott had been the human resources generalist and clinical operations manager for Purdue University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital in West Lafayette. She also worked in human resources at Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in Fort Collins, Colorado and University of Florida’s Small Animal Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. Elliott earned a master’s degree in business administration, specializing in human resources, from University of Phoenix, and is enrolled in Concordia University of Chicago’s online doctoral program in educational leadership in higher education. Her undergraduate studies were in biology and environmental science.
