OneCarolina announces new project director

Big things are happening on the OneCarolina team.

Bob Swab has been selected to assume the role of Executive Director of Business Operations at University Technology Services and has transitioned daily responsibility for OneCarolina project operations to Howard Haynes. Haynes began working as OneCarolina’s new project director on Sept. 1 after serving as OneCarolina project manager since early 2013.

“Howard is a natural fit to lead this project,” said Swab. “Not only has he been with us for over a year now, he’s an experienced and a fearless leader, and there’s no doubt in my mind that he will serve this project and the university extremely well in the years to come.”

Despite the change, Swab will continue to maintain his responsibility for financial oversight of the project.

Haynes has extensive experience working with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) implementations, having contributed to projects at 12 separate institutions of higher education over a 16-year span. Prior to his experience in higher education, he retired from the United States Air Force after 20 years of service, spending the last 10 years working as a project manager in the Special Weapons division.

“I’m excited and honored to have been selected to lead this historic project,” he said. “We have a tremendous team here at the University of South Carolina, and we are working hard to deliver something truly exceptional for our students, faculty, and staff. I promise that we will continue to work hard, hold ourselves accountable, and stay focused as we look towards going live with Finance in 2015, with Human Resources and Payroll following in early 2016.”
