Scott Allen Named Chief Financial Officer of Post University

WATERBURY, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Post University, a traditional university with an excellent online program, today announced that Scott Allen has been named Chief Financial Officer. He joined Post University in 1999 and has served as Vice President, Finance and Administration of the University since 2000.

With 23 years experience in private higher education within the state of Connecticut, Mr. Allen manages all aspects of the university's finance, budget, financial aid, and compliance operations, as well as human resources, facilities, contract and auxiliary services.

"Scott has been an instrumental part of Post University's ability to grow while still maintaining its focus on student achievement and satisfaction," said Tom Samph, Ph.D., Chancellor and CEO of Post University.

"I'm a big believer in Post University and the students it serves," said Allen. "I feel privileged to have had a front row seat as the University has evolved from a traditional, on-ground higher education institution to one that can better meet the needs of traditional and non-traditional students -- both on our campus and through our online accelerated degree programs."
