Ron Tredway joined the UT System in 2010, bringing more than 25 years of management and leadership experience in a variety of functions. His training includes multiple professional and program certifications, areas of focus and volunteer outreach components.

Treadway retired from EOD in August, and his coworkers had encouraging words about his time leading EOD.

Faith Lewis, senior training consultant: “I appreciate Ron’s willingness to share his knowledge and expertise to enhance the experiences of the customers we served at UT. I am grateful for the professional development opportunities I received under Ron’s leadership. I wish him the best in his next exciting chapter!”

Marti Willen, senior training consultant: “I appreciate Ron’s ability to think creatively. He always challenged our team to think outside the box as to how we could add value to the university. Many of his ideas and innovative processes developed into successful professional development opportunities that utilized the gifts of everyone on the team.”

Leigh Mosley, senior training specialist: “From my first day, Ron Tredway impressed me with the depth of his knowledge about the many institutions and personalities that make up the University of Tennessee System. That, in addition to his unfailing willingness to be an attentive and respectful listener and his ready laugh, are what I will remember and miss the most about him as a leader and a human being.”
