Matthew Altier has been named executive director of the CSUS Foundation at California State University, Sacramento. In addition, he will hold the title of vice president for capital planning and resource development. Altier is currently associate vice president for facilities management at CSUS. He will assume his new responsibilities in September.

He replaces Elroy Littlefield, who will retire this fall as foundation executive director after a distinguished career at CSUS.

In making the announcement, CSUS President Alexander Gonzalez said that in the new dual role of executive director and vice president, Altier will not only manage and provide leadership for the CSUS Foundation and its operations, but also continue to assist in the development and oversight of the Campus Master Plan. This entails planning efforts both on the CSUS campus – Destination 2010 – and other possible sites such as the new Placer County campus.

Altier will also continue to plan and develop new resources and relationships for future projects. These include: student housing; development of a river-view restaurant; involvement in the planning and development of the 65th Street Redevelopment Zone; assistance with the development of the new Recreation, Wellness and Events Center facility; acquisition of off-campus land and facilities; and assistance with the economic development of the University and region through relationships in the community.

“With the scope of responsibility and authority of his new position, Matt will be able to expand the role of the CSUS Foundation, while at the same time, enhancing the University and its related auxiliaries,” Gonzalez said.

The search for a new associate vice president for facilities management will begin immediately.
