An 18-year veteran of the UNMC Department of Business and Finance, Kraft Mann will report to Doug Ewald, vice chancellor for business, finance and business development for UNMC and the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
In her new role, Kraft Mann will work with Chancellor Jeffrey P. Gold, M.D., the vice chancellors and each of the deans and major business units to determine opportunities for savings and revenue generation, such as new contracts, new collaborations and other potential new revenue sources.
A 1990 graduate of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Kraft Mann first joined UNMC as a financial analyst in 2000. She was named assistant manager in 2002 and manager in 2006. For the past eight years, she had been serving as director of budget and fiscal analysis.
Kraft Mann will lead a team of between five and seven people in her new role.
"In my first two months at UNMC, Susan has become one of my trusted advisors," Ewald said. "I look forward to future collaborations as we continue to explore savings opportunities and new revenue sources."
Kraft Mann said she’s excited to take on the new challenge and enjoys the fast pace of the medical center.
"It's always something different," she said. "We have our routine things that we do monthly, quarterly, annually, but we're always changing, always growing and always investigating new areas, whether it's research, clinical or education - and it's exciting to be a part of that.
"That is part of the allure of this job as well," she said. "You learn something new every day."
