AST announces new CAO
Ted Vaughan has been appointed as the next chief administrative officer for the Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax, effective Feb. 1.
The announcement was made earlier this month by Rev. Neale Bennet, president, Atlantic School of Theology.
For the past four years, Vaughan has served as director of universities and colleges with the Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education. He knows AST well and has a strong appreciation for the challenges and opportunities facing the school. He also brings a passion for the school’s mission and has a strong sense of optimism and commitment concerning its strategic direction. In addition, his integrity and strong sense of values are well aligned with AST’s culture and purpose.
Vaughan’s 18 years of senior management experience with government have largely been spent in the education and higher education sectors. Having managed significant budgets and carried out analyses of universities’ financial positions, he has strategic and hands-on experience with key functions of the CAO position, including facilities management, information technology and human resources.
