Neumont University Board of Directors Announces Search for Successor to President Levine

Salt Lake City, February 18, 2015The Board of Directors at Neumont University announced that President Edward H. Levine will be transitioning from the University presidency to focus on his role as a board member as part of the transition to new leadership at the Salt Lake City institution. The transition will occur smoothly during the spring of 2015 as a suitable successor is identified and installed.

Levine will continue his active involvement as a member of the Neumont Board of Directors. He said, “My time at Neumont is one of the most exciting and satisfying positions of my career. The opportunity to build an institution that comprehensively educates and develops young people for high-demand careers is critically important to America. I am proud of the staff and faculty of Neumont and their unique abilities to solve complex education challenges in the service of students and their eventual employers. I am pleased to be able to continue my role in governance at Neumont University.

Mr. Levine became president of the university in the autumn of 2007 when the young institution was distracted with operational issues that challenged the viability of the university. In the intervening years, the University’s administration has re-engineered the curriculum, recruited excellent faculty and staff, established effective marketing programs, strengthened relationships with industry, moved to a landmark campus, and established a solid financial foundation for the future.

Matthew Vettel, a founding member of the Board said, “Ned and his colleagues have built an extraordinary bachelor’s degree granting institution that makes and keeps promises to all constituencies. Neumont would not be the distinctive institution that it is today without his vision and energy. The Neumont community is fortunate that Ned will continue in an active role beyond his presidency”.

In addition to his continuing governance role at Neumont, Mr. Levine with be pursuing his long- term interest in land conservation and his board service to entrepreneurial and innovative companies.

The Neumont Board is conducting a national search for a successor. Nominations should be submitted to the Neumont University Human Relations Department at careers@neumont.edu.
