Godson Adadevoh has been with UNT World for five years and join us in congratulation him for a recent promotion to Director of Budget & Strategic Planning. Few bring a work ethic, day-in and day-out, like Godson, which is one reason he considers his proudest work moment to be when the first budget he worked on got approved by UNT's Board of Regents. It's always great to see something that you worked hard on be incorporated in the organization's plans," he said. Husband to Millicent and father to 7-year-old Langston, Godson is a music lover, a pizza lover and apparently a now-retired youth basketball coach who boasts an unblemished record -- you'll have to see why by reading on. Get to know Godson.

Q&A

What is your favorite aspect of your job?
My favorite part of my job is being able to work with so many great people. Some of the great folks I work with include: ChengCheng Liu from the Controller team, she helps me understand how (and why) things post to the General Ledger and is a great partner; Ron Brade on the Procurement team, I worked with Ron and his staff on building his Fiscal Year 2022 budget from the ground up, and I'm super-excited about Ron joining the organization; and Gulnaar Murthy on the Treasury team, who is one of my favorite people! It doesn't hurt that she is always able to assist when I need something related to UNT System cash.

What employee benefit or activity would you like to see added to UNT World?
Four-day work weeks.

What is your proudest work moment?
My proudest work moment was having the first budget I worked on get approved by UNT's Board of Regents. It's always great to see something that you worked hard on be incorporated in the organization's plans.

What is your proudest non-work moment?
The birth of my son has been my proudest non-work moment. Langston is now 7 years old. He's a good kid and I see quite a bit of myself in him.

What is a fact about you that may surprise your colleagues?
I'm 1-0 coaching my son's basketball team. I only coached one game a a replacement, so I'll forever be undefeated!
