Announcing Patrick Roth as Interim Director of Payroll Services

Dear FAS colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Patrick Roth will serve as Interim Director of Payroll Services effective July 1, 2022.

As Interim Director, Patrick will oversee the Payroll Services team that is responsible for producing and distributing payroll to approximately 29,000 employees, which includes monthly, semi-monthly, and off-cycle payrolls for employees at the university.

Most recently, Patrick served as the Assistant Director in Payroll Services where he oversees the Payment and Financials teams to ensure quality service to the university, timely and accurate employee payments, encumbrances, annual pooled fringe rate analysis, and quality customer service to the university and its employees.

“I am grateful and excited for the opportunity to take on this role in the interim to ensure business continuity and stability for Payroll Services and the university,” said Patrick. “The Payroll Services team is an integral part of university business, and I am proud to be able to help lead this amazing team of talented, dedicated professionals.”

Patrick has been with the university since 2011 and held roles as a Finance Manager, Payroll Manager, Financial Analyst, and Federal Loan Processor. Patrick has served as a student mentor to UT Austin students and has served on the board of directors for AIDS Services of Austin (now Vivent Health). He has a degree in International Business from Butler University. 

Please join me in welcoming Patrick as he takes on this critical leadership role.
