Mohammad "Mo" Qayoumi, a native of Afghanistan and currently the vice president for administration and finance and chief financial officer at Cal State Northridge, has been appointed president of California State University, East Bay. He was named to the post by the California State University Board of Trustees during its meeting on Wednesday, May 17 in Long Beach.

Qayoumi, 54, will be the fourth president in the 49-year history of Cal State East Bay. He will succeed Norma Rees, who has led the university for 16 years, by July 1. His executive skills impressed members of the search committee.

"Dr. Qayoumi's outstanding academic experience, administrative background and leadership qualities are reflective of the campus profile as a student-centered, inclusive and progressive institution," said Herbert Carter, CSU trustee and chair of the presidential search committee. "His energy and ideas, combined with his superior resource and organizational management skills, will be a tremendous asset as the campus continues on its path in the future."

Mo Qayoumi has been married for 27 years to Najia Karim. They have no children. He is a licensed professional engineer and a certified management accountant.
