Each year, BYU Financial Services awards a financial controller with the title “Controller of the Year.” This year, Thaylene Rogers, Controller and Assistant Dean for the College of Fine Arts and Communications (CFAC), was honored with this title.

The award is meant to honor a controller from BYU whose efforts contributed to the quality of campus financial controllership. Rogers earned the honor through her dedicated work on the campus-wide Workday Service Delivery Model as well as the Controller Retreat Planning committee.

Rogers also received a Staff and Administrative Employee Recognition Award (SAERA) for teamwork after being nominated by BYU Financial Services Assistant Administration Vice President Alan Moose. “We were excited to see Thaylene nominated for the 2023 Controller of the Year,” said Moose. “Having served on several committees with Thaylene, our teams have come to appreciate her clear, candid and kind counsel in different situations. She is always a willing and trusted contributor in these teams.”

Rogers has worked for BYU for several years, beginning in the financial office for Arts Production. After four years, she became the business manager for the Departments of Theatre and Media Arts, as well as Art and Design. In 2015, Rogers became the controller for BYU Technology Transfer where she worked until 2019, when she accepted the position as Assistant Dean and Controller for CFAC.

“[Rogers] is well-versed in the academics and activities of our college,” said CFAC Dean Ed Adams. “We have a complex college with academics, performances, exhibitions and client work. Thaylene understands the nature of our college from her time as a business manager in the departments. There is a kind, principled firmness to [Rogers.] She listens attentively, both processing the information while overlaying the financial repercussions and the policy implications. In her work, she is patient, deliberative and thorough. I appreciate all of these attributes.”
