In February, Samuel Wilson III joined the Peabody Institute as the associate dean for finance and administration. As Peabody’s divisional business officer, he is responsible for strategically leading, planning, and organizing the Institute’s administrative functions and oversees staff in human resources, facilities, information technology, and the business office.
“Sam brings deep knowledge in strategic business development as well as strong experience and analysis of financial business models to Peabody,” Dean Fred Bronstein says. “After a comprehensive national search, I am excited to have Sam joining Peabody as we plan for current and future activities, programs, and the development of new revenue streams.”
Wilson previously served as the Chief Business Officer at the University of Delaware’s College of Health Sciences. Prior to that, Wilson was a financial analyst at Siemens Healthcare Global and held analyst and accounting positions with various financial services organizations in Delaware, including Wilmington Trust Company, PNC Global Investments, and Bank of America. He’s managed multi-million-dollar budgets while exercising strong cost-control efforts and financially responsible decisions. A strategic higher-education professional skilled in financial management and staff development, Wilson is currently chairing the search committee for Peabody’s inaugural Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
