"I have worked closely with Patrick in my previous role as the DeVry Group audit and finance committee chair and I am thrilled to work with him in his new role as CFO," said Lisa Wardell, president and CEO of DeVry Group. "He has developed a strong reputation for his partnership approach to the broader DeVry Group team and will have an important role helping to implement our diversification strategy."

He graduated from Loyola University Chicago with a bachelor's degree in business administration and is a certified public accountant. He started his career with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
