Wayne Magdziarz Appointed Chief Financial Officer/Chief Business Officer

August 3, 2017

Dear Members of the Loyola Community,

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Wayne Magdziarz as senior vice president and chief financial officer/chief business officer (CFO/CBO), effective immediately.

For the past 14 years, Wayne has served as senior vice president for Capital Planning and Campus Management. In this role, he has overseen all aspects of our campus and facilities management, led our multi-campus redevelopment projects, and guided the acquisition, construction, leasing, and sale of more than $1 billion in capital assets, including the creation of our in-house investment property management organization.

In this new role as CFO/CBO, Wayne will lead and integrate all the finance, capital planning, and campus management functions under one division. This important consolidation will allow the University to better steward its resources, focus on our key strategic financial objectives, and organize and leverage our finance and other business functions. This integration will better serve the campus community and address the challenges and opportunities we face in the evolving higher education landscape.

Wayne is a double Loyola alumnus, earning his bachelor's degree in radio and television in 1982 and his MBA in 1987. He has worked at Loyola for more than 35 years, the last 25 as a University officer. Early in his career, he managed the University's FM radio station and later joined the faculty, teaching courses in radio and TV production for nine years. Wayne transitioned into administration at Loyola in 1990, and he has overseen many different University operations while serving four University presidents. His long and distinguished tenure with Loyola includes service to the University’s Board of Trustees as well as service on the President’s Cabinet and the Budget Review Team. In addition to his administrative work, Wayne serves on the Finance Council for Holy Name Cathedral, co-hosts a radio show for the Archdiocese of Chicago several times a month, and is a key University liaison and partner to the Archdiocese. Wayne’s personal commitment to Loyola, and to our unique Jesuit, Catholic mission, will greatly benefit the University and all our students in his new expanded role.

Please join me in congratulating Wayne on this appointment.
