New Executive Director Named


Jan. 2, 2020 — Dana Kellerman has been named executive director of College Auxiliary Services. Dana’s last position was chief operating officer and chief human resources officer at Adirondack Health based in Saranac Lake. In that role she was responsible for day-to-day operations and oversight of revenue generating auxiliary departments and clinical services for the campuses that make up the diverse health system.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in general science/organization behavior from St. Joseph College in Standish, Maine; and a graduate certificate in human resources and labor relations from Cornell University. She is currently completing her M.B.A. through Capella University. Dana is active in a range of volunteer and community organizations ranging from Guiding Eyes for the Blind to the Olympic Regional Development Authority.

She succeeds Wayne Duprey, who retired in December after leading CAS since 2001. I want to thank Wayne for his long-standing dedication and time-tested leadership of this important component of college operations. He has been a critical part of our joint success and we will miss his contribution to campus life.
