Assistant Dean Thomas Olson retires


Thomas Olson

Feb. 10, 2017 – Thomas Olson, the college’s assistant dean of finance, human resources, and research since 2000, retired in December after 28 years at Virginia Tech. Thomas was an integral part of the college’s day-to-day operations, including managing the college’s financial portfolio, serving as the college liaison for new faculty hires and search committees, and representing the college on the associate deans for research and graduate studies group. Yet he was always willing to roll up his sleeves and pitch in with preparing for space renovations or handling emergency situations. Thomas and his wife Martha will remain in Blacksburg and look forward to traveling, including extended vacations to Thomas’s native Sweden. Congratulations Thomas, you will be missed!
