New Vice President of Finance Named at Willamette University

Jeffrey Glenn Eisenbarth, currently the vice president of business and administration at Berea College in Berea, Ky., will begin his new job as vice president of financial affairs at Willamette University Sept. 2.

"We are pleased to welcome Jeff to the Willamette community," said University President Lee Pelton. "He has worked in higher education finance for 22 years and we believe he possesses the qualities necessary to help Willamette University reach its financial goals. We expect him to play a key leadership role in the development of the campus and in managing Willamette's endowment."

In addition to serving Berea College since 1997, Eisenbarth worked in finance at the University of Idaho and Washington State University, Pullman.

He earned his bachelor of science and his master's of business administration degrees from the University of Idaho. He and his wife, Sudie, have two daughters, Lyndsey and Danielle.

Eisenbarth replaces Brian Hardin who retires from Willamette University in August after 21 years of service.
