Professional Summary
President 06/1985 - Present
American National University - Salem, VA

My career began at American National University with an affiliate and predecessor, Kentucky Business College now an integral part of the American National University System.

Subsequent to my military service, and upon graduation from Eastern Kentucky University in 1972, I joined Kentucky Business College (now National College) as an instructor and financial aid director.

I have successively progressed through numerous positions including; federal funds manager, student affairs director, vice-president, Chief Executive Officer and Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors, to  President and Chairman. To understand my progression and current role, it is appropriate to understand the growth of American National University.

American National University (ANU), founded in 1886, is a multi-campus, multi-state university offering programs in the medical, IT, and business fields at levels up to the Master's. The University currently delivers its educational services through 31 campus locations and an on line division. Curriculums are offered in Medical, IT, and Business concentrations up through the Master's level.

When I began as an instructor the University System consisted  of only two locations in the Kentucky geographic area and one location in Virginia.  Through acquisitions,  internal expansions, and program development, the University has grown to its current state.

Since 1985, I have been the senior official of the University, and currently serve as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors. My list of position  duties and responsibilities are commensurate with the job title.
