Seton Hill hires new CFO
Seton Hill University is getting a new chief financial officer.
Seton Hill President Mary C. Finger announced Tuesday that Jennifer R. Lundy will be the university's CFO and vice president for finance and administration, effective Feb. 1.
She succeeds CFO Paul Edsall, who is retiring after working for nearly 20 years in various financial and administrative roles. He will assist with the transition.
“We are pleased to have Jennifer Lundy join Seton Hill's leadership team,” Finger said. “Jennifer's experience as a financial executive in higher education will be a tremendous asset as Seton Hill continues to explore growth in academic programs and work on campus expansion projects that will enhance the learning experience for all students.”
Lundy comes from Pittsburgh's Chatham University, where she was associate vice president for finance and administration for 11 years. In that role, she developed the university's budget, managed the endowment and oversaw the external audit and other compliance matters.
During her time at Chatham, Lundy also was an adjunct faculty member. She taught courses in financial accounting and auditing at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
“I am excited to join the Seton Hill University community, and I look forward to working with the trustees, administrators, faculty and staff to continue the excellent work that has been ongoing at Seton Hill,” Lundy said.
Lundy will be responsible for managing the business and financial services of Seton Hill and will oversee the areas of accounting, procurement, human resources, auxiliary services, facilities and public safety, as well as campus construction and renovation projects.
Prior to her time at Chatham, Lundy was a senior auditor with Schneider Downs and an interim school director for the Penn Hills School District. In that capacity, she negotiated contracts and made recommendations that helped control costs for the district.
Lundy earned a master of business administration degree, with a specialization in leadership and organizational change, from Chatham University and a bachelor's degree in accounting from the University of Pittsburgh.
