The Search for Peirce College’s Next President

Following the announcement that Peirce College President & CEO, James J. Mergiotti, will retire from the College on June 30, 2018, the Peirce College Board of Trustees has formed a Presidential Search Committee to identify the College’s eighth president.

The seven-member committee represents a cross-section of the full Board as well as the diversity of experience and perspectives of its many members. The committee members are: Marc Ammaturo, Peter Caputo, Lisa Curran, Mark Edwards, Sharmain Matlock-Turner, Tom McLaughlin and Toni Pergolin. Marc Ammaturo will Chair the committee and Mark Edwards will serve as Vice Chair. The Presidential Search Committee will report directly to the Chair, Peirce College Board of Trustees, who will also serve as an ex officio committee member.

More information on the committee's next steps will be forthcoming soon. Please continue to check this page for future updates.
