Following the retirement of longtime CFO Kathleen McGuire, Dean College has named Thomas Pistorino as the school’s new chief financial officer and treasurer. 

Pistorino will begin his new role in January, according to a Dean press release issued Monday. He formerly served as the CFO for Lesley University in Cambridge and Regis College in Weston. 

"Tom is highly regarded for his expertise in transformative change, strategic planning, complex financial modeling, process improvement, enterprise risk management, and particularly around shared services and system implementation," Mark Boyce, chair of the board of Dean’s trustees, said in the statement. "We are looking forward to working with him as he brings his perspective to Dean College."

Pistorino replaces McGuire as the school’s CFO. McGuire retired after holding a variety of finance-related positions in her 30-year tenure at Dean.

"I am grateful for Kathy's work during her transition toward retirement," Dean College President Kenneth Elmore said in the press release. "Tom will be able to hit the ground running with us in the new year, and his background will add immeasurably to the College's strategic operations."

Immediately prior to his appointment at Dean, Pistorino served as an advisor for CBIZ & MHM, helping higher education institutions throughout the Northeast with improving their financial operations, according to the release. During his time at Lesley and Regis, he helped both institutions transition from women's colleges to co-educational schools. 

"I am grateful for the opportunity to join Dean College and for the trust placed in me by the Board of Trustees and the hiring committee," Pistorino said in the press release. "I am looking forward to working with President Kenneth Elmore and his leadership team and to becoming part of The Dean Difference."
