U-Va. appoints new chief operating officer

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A retired Ernst & Young executive is the new chief operating officer and executive vice president of the University of Virginia.

The university’s Board of Visitors unanimously approved Patrick Hogan’s appointment Friday. Hogan succeeds Michael Strine, who resigned in August in the wake of a failed attempt by some board members to oust university President Teresa Sullivan.

Hogan is a retired deputy global managing partner with Ernst & Young, one of the world’s largest accounting firms. He worked for Ernst & Young for 37 years.

Hogan serves as vice chairman of the McIntire School of Commerce Advisory Board at U-Va. He’s also a member of the university’s Hospital Operating Board.

Sullivan said Hogan understands the university’s mission, as well as the globalization that affects both higher education and industry.
