Alan Fish, the man behind the recent wave of campus building expansion, announced he is leaving UW-Madison and accepting a new job at Johns Hopkins University.
In his time as associate vice chancellor for facilities, UW-Madison has seen the largest building boom since the 1960s.
Fish also helped create the campus master plan, a 10-year campus expansion plan that included projects such as the new Lakeshore residence hall and the new Gordon Commons dining facility.
"The position at Johns Hopkins offers tremendous new opportunities and challenges," Fish said in a statement. "I will miss my colleagues and friends here at UW-Madison, but I will always take great pride in what we've accomplished together in building and maintaining a world-class infrastructure here."
Recently completed projects under Fish's tenure include Ogg and Smith residence halls, Union South and the Microbial Sciences Building.
Fish will begin his position as Johns Hopkins' vice president of real estate and campus services in early January.
