Washington, D.C.— Timothy Doyle, Associate Dean for Finance and CFO for Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) will join the Carnegie Institution for Science as Chief Operating Officer on April 15, 2015.

Mr. Doyle’s unique blend of experience includes complex administrative and financial organizations, private sector businesses, and most recently, the research and education sectors. His diverse financial and operations background has yielded expertise spanning the areas of strategic leadership, financial systems and controls, budgeting and planning, and administration efficiency. This expertise combines with strong leadership skills, developed early in his career while serving in the United States Army as a commissioned officer through ROTC. He then served as a director with Rand McNally, where he led a staff of 240 to execute daily production operations; he also oversaw capital management, plants assets, and employee development.

Following the time spent in the military and publishing operations, Mr. Doyle moved into the financial services industry, where he served seven years as Vice President of Financial Operations with Fidelity Investments. He then transitioned into higher education working at Harvard University Press as Chief Financial Officer. Most recently, he became the Associate Dean for Finance and CFO in Harvard’s School of Engineering & Applied Sciences.

“We could not be happier to have Tim on board,” remarked Carnegie president Matthew Scott. “In addition to his expansive portfolio in business operations, he is very familiar with the research enterprise, the importance of good management in serving science, and management of decentralized organizations. His strong leadership skills, collaborative management style, and track record of planning for and adapting to future conditions will be tremendous assets to Carnegie.”

Doyle received a B.S. in Marketing from Boston College, Carroll School of Management and an MBA with a concentration in International Finance and Operations from Suffolk University, Sawyer Business School in Boston.
