I am pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Miller, Ph.D. as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University effective November 1, 2019. Since February 2019, Dr. Miller has served as Interim CFO for Downstate’s academic enterprise.
Dr. Miller joined University Hospital of Brooklyn in 2012 as Assistant Vice President for Hospital Finance. Since then, he served briefly as Interim Hospital Chief Financial Officer and later became Vice President and Hospital Chief Financial Officer before being appointed to the Interim CFO for the University.
Before joining Downstate, Dr. Miller spent nearly three decades at the University of Chicago Medical Center (UCMC) in various leadership roles, including Vice President of Finance, Executive Director of Finance and Controller, and Controller, among others.
A former Marine Reservist, Dr. Miller received his undergraduate degree from Oberlin College and his doctorate in philosophy from the University of Chicago. He holds the MBA degree plus CPA and CIA (Certified Public Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor, respectively) certificates.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Miller on his new and continuing role.
