UC San Francisco appoints captives director as senior vice chancellor

UC San Francisco (UCSF), a research university dedicated to health science and part of the University of California, has appointed Erin Gore as its new senior vice chancellor. Gore already serves as a board director for the University of California System Captive Insurance Company.

In her role at UCSF, Gore will refine a budget process and systems for longer-term financial planning and effective operational management. She will also identify and evaluate potential investments and revenue opportunities and increase the transparency of communication around budgeting and fiscal management.

Gore joins from Wells Fargo, where she was executive vice president of growth initiatives, strategy and communication, and led brand campaigns and COVID crisis coordination while significantly reducing operating expenses. Before that, she was the director of the bank’s higher education and not for profit division at Wells Fargo.

Until 2014 she served as UC Berkeley’s associate vice chancellor of planning and budget and chief financial officer.

“Erin has demonstrated an impressive capacity for strategic, big-picture thinking, systems refinement, and relationship-building through open communication,” said Dan Lowenstein, UCSF executive vice chancellor and provost. “Her combination of skills is a great fit for the complex community that is UCSF.”
