Upon obtaining his bachelor's degree in 1969, Greg Balsano taught for four years at the elementary level for the Roselle School District, a public school system in suburban Chicago. He held teaching credentials for both the elementary and secondary grades. In 1973 Greg began his work in administrative management at Christian organizations as credit manager for Christian Life Publishers, Inc., and was later asked to head office and warehouse operations. He then broadened his management experience by beginning a 12-year employment relationship with Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., that included eight years in the role of director of personnel and administrative services. Greg's experience in human resource management prepared him to meet a need at Biola University in 1988 for someone who could develop and manage an employee training and development department. One year later, he was appointed to the position of director of human resources. His experience in directing a variety of administrative services led to his 1995 appointment as vice president for university services, which includes the departments of Auxiliary Services, Campus Safety and Facilities Management.
