MACOMB, IL – Letisha Trepac, director of the Western Illinois University Foundation Financial Affairs, has been named the budget director, effective Jan. 1, according to WIU President Jack Thomas.

Trepac also served as a budget analyst in the WIU Budget Office (2009-2012), which included processing budget transactions, assisting with budget inquiries, reviewing and approving personnel financial requests and evaluating personnel and operating reserves. Trepac has worked as a human resources officer at Western (2006-2009) and as an office manager for human resources (2005-2006), as well as in support specialist positions since 1999.

"Letisha's financial background and her years of service at Western will provide a seamless transition for the budget office," Thomas said. "Her understanding of the University's budget process will ensure continued sound fiscal management."
