Lee Stone

The University of Alabama at Birmingham welcomes Lee Stone as the executive director of UAB Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) following a national search. He will join UAB March 1.

“We are excited to welcome Lee to UAB, where his experience and knowledge will serve him and our campus well,” said Greg Parsons, associate vice president and chief facilities officer. “We have taken great care and time to find the right person for this role, and we are confident Lee is that person. He will lead the way in creating a strong culture of safety on our campus, in our laboratories, and in UAB’s healthcare facilities.”

Lee has more than 35 years of laboratory and research safety experience and comes to UAB from Indiana University, where he served in many safety leadership roles, most recently as university director of Research Safety.

“UAB has an excellent reputation, and I look forward to joining the team,” Stone said. “I’m excited to pair my experience in laboratory and research safety with the experience of the team members already on the ground to grow the culture of safety on campus.”

The national search was chaired by Tony Caminiti, director of Facilities Operations, and an 6-member search committee representing university and EH&S staff, in partnership with executive search firm LeadExec.

Stone will report to Jolene King, assistant vice president of Facilities Administration and Environmental Health & Safety, who says she looks forward to Stone’s leadership in bringing the relevant safety groups together.

“We have several safety-focused departments on our campus and Lee will help us create streamlined communication channels between them,” King said. “By working together, these groups will ensure the safest experience for our faculty, staff, students and visitors.”

Stone graduated from Purdue University with Bachelor of Science and Indiana University with a master’s degree. He is married and has three adult children. He and his wife are relocating to Alabama from Indiana.
