Purdue Global’s Diego Britto selected for second term on UPCEA finance committee
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Diego Britto, vice president of finance for Purdue Global, has been selected for a second one-year term on the University Professional and Continuing Education Association finance committee.
UPCEA is a Washington, D.C.-based association for college and university leaders in professional, continuing and online education.
“I am very humbled to have been asked to serve the UPCEA finance committee for one more year,” said Britto, noting that over the last year the committee made investment decisions that will help put UPCEA’s financial reserves in a strong position given the current economic outlook.
With Purdue Global, Britto is responsible for the financial support for all schools and supporting departments. He acts as a financial and strategic liaison with Purdue University executives and as an advisor to senior leadership at Purdue Global while also serving on multiple committees throughout the organization.
Britto has more than two decades of fast-track, cross-industry financial and operational success and over a decade of experience in the education industry. He boasts a diverse background spearheading new business implementations as well as risk-management and cost-saving initiatives.
“Diego has been a trusted member of the Purdue Global leadership team for many years, and it is a credit to his reputation as a forward-looking thinker that he was selected to the UPCEA finance committee last year,” Purdue Global Chancellor Frank Dooley said. “Being asked to serve a second year further affirms his value in the challenging environment of college finance.”
