Stewart Uretsky, former vice president of the Brookings Institution, has been appointed Executive Vice President (EVP) for Finance and Administration at Brandeis University. Uretsky will be taking over from Steven Manos, former chief operating officer and senior vice president. Uretsky’s appointment was announced August 12 in an email from University President Ron Liebowitz. The EVP reports directly to Liebowitz as part of the Senior Management Team.

“Stewart will help ensure that our financial, capital, infrastructure and human resources are managed wisely and strongly aligned with the academic mission of the university,” Liebowitz explained in an interview with The Brandeis Hoot.

Liebowitz, while president of Middlebury College, completed a $500 million capital campaign and carried out several other fundraising campaigns. He is expected to focus on fundraising while at Brandeis. He explained that as EVP, Uretsky will be responsible for many of the financial and administrative components that help “Brandeis University support and accomplish its mission.”

After graduating from New York University with a bachelor’s degree in economics and management, Uretsky earned a master’s degree in international economics and international relations from Johns Hopkins University. His career took him from Goldman Sachs, where he was the founding deputy manager of their Caribbean office, to Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, where he served as chief administrative and financial officer.

Uretsky is treasurer of the board at WorldTeach, an organization that offers volunteer teaching opportunities in multiple countries.
