New system treasurer takes helm

Tracking the cash-flow for the Colorado State University system budget – which includes all campuses affiliated with CSU including Pueblo – is no small task. But it’s task recently embraced by Margaret Henry.margaret-henry-system-treasurer

Henry assumed the role of system treasurer this fall, after 31 years at the University of Denver , most recently in the role of controller and assistant treasurer. Her prior experience also includes working with DU’s investment consultants and managers.

As system treasurer, Henry will oversee all cash flow, financial investments and debt management for the entire university system.

“I was attracted to the challenge of supporting the CSU System financial efforts,” she said. “And the opportunity to continue to have working relationships with external financial and investment professionals.”

Although she spent the bulk of her prior career at DU, as CSU system treasurer, Henry returns home; she earned both her undergraduate and master’s degrees at Colorado State.

“I love being back on this campus, getting my green on every Friday, and playing a role in the initiatives of the system,” Henry said. Although a system treasurer, Henry will work on main campus in the Administration building, where she looks forward to connecting with new people. “Financial people love numbers and understanding the story they tell. However, at the end of the day, I would have to say my passion is about people and relationships.”
