Meet SCU’s new vice president for finance and administration.

After decades with the Oakland A’s as the team’s longest-tenured president, Michael Crowley takes on a new role on campus: vice president for finance and administration, a post he began on February 16.

Will Crowley bring some of the A’s famed “moneyball” attention to metrics? It’s critical to employ business fundamentals wherever you are, he says.

At SCU he has oversight of the University’s $925 million endowment and will play a key role in upcoming construction projects, including the Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation.

He’s no stranger to the Mission Campus. As president of the San Jose Earthquakes, he was instrumental in bringing the Earthquakes to Buck Shaw Stadium for seven seasons during Avaya Stadium’s construction.

He has also served as a member of SCU President Michael E. Engh’s Intercollegiate Athletics Commission. And he and wife Kathy Crowley ’85, who graduated with a degree in electrical engineering, were wed in the Mission Church.
