Dr. Michael Alfano, NYU’s Executive Vice President, today announced the appointment of Martin Dorph as Senior Vice President for Finance and Budget. Mr. Dorph - who is currently Vice President, Treasurer, and Chief Financial Officer of Temple University in Philadelphia - will begin his duties at NYU in January 2007.
Dr. Alfano said, “Marty Dorph is an accomplished professional who has been very successful in each of the public, private and academic sectors. His education as an MBA and JD from Penn, coupled with his diverse experience and creativity, helped support a period of solid growth during his years as CFO at Temple University. He has a deep appreciation for the academic process, and will be a valuable asset to our deans as they strive to enrich each of our programs. I am delighted to welcome him to NYU as the Senior Vice President for Finance and Budget.
“I would be remiss if I did not express to Jeanne Smith, on behalf of the entire University community, our gratitude and appreciation for her extraordinary work as CFO since May 2002. An announcement about her new role at the University will be forthcoming shortly.”
Mr. Dorph has held the position of Vice President, Treasurer, and CFO of Temple University since 1995, overseeing a wide range of financial and business operations there; he was deeply involved in campus revitalization efforts. Prior to that position, he had previously served as the Assistant General Manager for Finance and Planning for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority; the director of finance and administration, treasurer, and acting director of economic development for the Delaware River Port Authority; executive vice president of Newbold’s American Capital Group; deputy director of finance and acting procurement commissioner for the city of Philadelphia; and vice president of Public Financial Management, Inc. He has also been an instructor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Center of Government.
Mr. Dorph, who has served on numerous public boards, committees, and task forces, received his BS in management science with high honors from Case Western Reserve University. He received an MBA in accounting and public management, with distinction, from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, and his JD cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania’s Law School.
