The University of Louisville announced on Friday that former University of North Carolina System executive Jonathan Pruitt has been named as the university’s new Chief Financial Officer.

Pruitt recently served as senior vice president for finance and budget and chief financial officer at the University of North Carolina System. His new role with UofL will officially begin January 16, pending approval from the Board of Trustees.

“The University of Louisville is a remarkable institution, and I am honored, humbled, and excited to assume this role,” Pruitt said in a press release. “As the higher education landscape becomes increasingly competitive, successful public institutions must be able to demonstrate their value proposition to students, families and taxpayers. UofL is well-positioned to enhance the social and economic mobility of the state and I look forward to joining President Postel and his team in the work ahead.”

Pruitt is no stranger to Kentucky. A native of Pikeville, he began his career as both a senior associate in finance for the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education and as a policy and budget analyst for the Office for Policy and Management.
