Financial expert and experienced higher education leader David Miller has been selected as the next chief financial officer of the University of Tennessee System, UT President Joe DiPietro announced today. DiPietro will recommend Miller’s election to the position by the UT Board of Trustees during its Oct. 13-14 meeting in Knoxville.
Miller, currently vice president for administration and fiscal affairs at the University of Wisconsin System, was selected by DiPietro following a comprehensive, national search that began in June. Miller will take office Jan. 1, pending board approval.
Miller will succeed Butch Peccolo, who retired as treasurer and chief financial officer in December 2015 after 40 years of service. Ron Maples, who has served as auditor and controller in addition to various administrative roles during his 40-year career at UT, has served as interim CFO since January.
