Texas Tech University has named a new Chief Financial Officer.

On Tuesday, Tech announced that Noel Sloan has been hired to serve as Chief Financial Officer and Vice President for Administration and Finance.

Sloan has served as the interim in the position since July.

“Noel’s background in tax law and finance, along with her experience and understanding of the university’s financial structure, elevated her as the best choice for the position,” said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis.

Sloan began working at Texas Tech in 2006, and has served as tax director, interim managing director for Student Business Services, managing director for Financial Services and Tax, and most recently, interim chief financial officer for the university.

Sloan, a native of Slinger, Wisconsin, has earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a law degree from Baylor University.
