New U. of Virginia chief operating officer Pat Hogan
The University of Virginia has hired a new chief operating officer, Patrick D. Hogan, and taken a major step toward rebuilding the president’s senior leadership team after a tumultuous summer.
Hogan is a business executive who worked for Ernst &Young for more than three decades and oversaw the company’s global quality and risk management. Hogan is a longtime member of the U-Va. commerce school’s advisory board, and last year he was appointed to the university’s Medical Center Operating Board.
Hogan, 60, will be paid $450,000 per year and receive a $75,000 signing bonus, according to his five-year contract. He is set to start on Oct. 25. His hire was approved by the U-Va. Board of Visitors during a Friday morning meeting called for just that purpose, along with an hour-long closed door meeting.
