OSU Chief Financial Officer to Leave In May

Wexner Medical Center

Ohio State University announced today its senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer will be leaving in May.

In a news release issued today Geoffrey Chatas says he will leave OSU May 10th.

University President Michael Drake praised Chatas for his forward-thinking approach. Drake said Chatas leaves the University in strong financial shape.

In 2012, under Chatas’s leadership, the university received $483 million in exchange for a 50-year lease of Ohio State’s parking operations. The lease was negotiated through QIC, a global diversified alternatives investment firm that financed the Ohio State parking transaction. Chatas will lead QIC’s North American infrastructure business. The university said in a prepared statement that Chatas will not be involved in any aspect of the OSU parking lease.
