Framingham State University has hired Robert Totino to be its next vice president of finance, technology, and administration/chief financial officer.

Totino has more than 40 years of working in financial management operations at colleges and universities, having most recently served as the vice president of finance and CFO at Boston-based Wentworth Institute of Technology, according to a Framingham State press release issued Friday.

“The VP of finance and administration is a critical leadership position at any institution, but even more so at a public university with the twin responsibilities of careful stewardship of public funding, and vibrant growth into the new landscape of higher education. I am very pleased to have someone with the experience and knowledge of Robert Totino join our team,” Framingham State President Nancy Niemi said in the press release.

Totino will take over the role on Aug. 1. He will replace Dale Hamel, who has been with the university for over 20 years and is heading into retirement.

“Dale Hamel has set apart Framingham State University for more than 23 years through his devotion to FSU and his oversight of the University’s finances,” said Niemi in the press release. “He leaves FSU in a strong and steady financial position.”

Totino first joined Wentworth in 1993 as a staff accountant before being elevated to the role of vice president of finance and CFO in 2010. He holds an MBA from Suffolk University in Boston and a doctorate degree in higher education administration from Boston-based Northeastern University. 

“I’m looking forward to being a collaborative team player within the campus community, as well as the greater Framingham and MetroWest communities,” Totino said in the press release. “One of my top priorities will be identifying the necessary resources to assist in the success of the next strategic plan.”
