Texas Tech University today (Dec. 10) named Noel Sloan to the position of Chief Financial Officer and Vice President for Administration & Finance. Sloan has been the interim in the position since July.
“I am pleased to make this announcement today,” said M. Duane Nellis, Texas Tech University president. “Noel’s background in tax law and finance, along with her experience and understanding of the university’s financial structure, elevated her as the best choice for the position.”
Sloan arrived at Texas Tech University in 2006 and has held positions as tax director, interim managing director for Student Business Services, managing director for Financial Services & Tax, and most recently, interim chief financial officer for the university. She also has served as an adjunct faculty member in the Rawls College of Business.
“I am excited about this new role and look forward to working with President Nellis, his executive team and the Administration and Finance team,” Sloan said. “I am eager to collaborate with our faculty, staff and students as we lead Texas Tech forward to new levels of success.”
A native of Slinger, Wisc., Sloan received a bachelor’s in business administration in accounting and a juris doctorate from Baylor University. Upon graduation, she began working at Congdon, Ward and Walden law firm in Waukesha, Wisc., before handling wealth planning in the Private Client Services group of Arthur Anderson. Prior to her arriving at Texas Tech, Sloan practiced in the area of estate planning for Michael Best & Friedrich, LLP, in Milwaukee.
