Post University has reorganized its administrative leadership to further reinforce the commitment to delivering personalized educational experiences. John L. Hopkins, CEO and President, led the recent University rebranding and is committed to delivering a personal education, and the move of more than 400 higher education associates and professionals to downtown Waterbury.
“We are building Post University one student at a time, knowing that each student has different aspirations, challenges and learning styles. We have personalized the entire student experience as the DNA of everything we do,” Hopkins says. “We want them to have an extraordinary learning experience and new level of marketability. It’s what we promise.”
In addition, Mark Chesney has been appointed Post Vice President and Joan Huwiler was named Director of University Communications.
Chesney, a higher education veteran, brings extensive experience in customer service, finance, administration, campus operations and facilities management from his executive-level positions at many established, customer-focused businesses.
According to Hopkins, Chesney will hold Post administrators and associates accountable for delivering extraordinary student experiences to ensure overall success. He leads the build-out of Post’s new downtown Waterbury education hub in the landmark Howland-Hughes Building.
Huwiler joins Post University from Edible Arrangements, where she was Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations. Huwiler has more than 15 years of experience across Connecticut and has worked in corporate, non-profit and governmental organizations, including Yale Health System and as a consultant to the New Haven Public School System and Bridgeport Housatonic Community College.
Huwiler leads the University’s internal and external communications, including the social channels. She will continue to build Post’s regional and national visibility, strengthen local partnerships, and engage stakeholders via community relations, public relations and the growing social channels.
