Tom Calhoun, who joined George Mason a year ago as director of facilities planning, has been promoted to vice president for Facilities, effective Feb. 25. Calhoun succeeds Reid Herlihy, who recently resigned after 19 years with Mason.

Calhoun will provide guidance and direction to the university’s facility planning efforts as well as design and construction, space management and the operation of the Physical Plant.

According to Senior Vice President Maurice Scherrens, “Tom brings a depth and breadth of experience as well as an understanding of the goals and objectives of the university that should serve us well during this upcoming period of significant physical resource expansion.”

Prior to joining George Mason in February 2005, Calhoun served as a commanding officer in the U.S. Navy, overseeing a 400-person operation that annually delivered $550 million in planning, design and construction management services to Department of Defense installations in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., area.
