As associate vice president, Frost will be responsible for all human resource functions of the area’s largest employer, including oversight of employee benefits, organizational training & development, employee/labor relations, recruitment and appointments, compensation and performance management, employee assistance program, as well as the diversity/affirmative action and employee/student health offices.
