Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates- 07 February 2019: Abu Dhabi University (ADU), an internationally recognized academic institution for quality education and applied research, has announced the appointments of Ian Mathews as Vice Chancellor for Administrative and Financial Affairs and Professor Phil Hamill as Associate Provost of Student Success. 

Mr. Mathews served as Chief Financial Officer at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), Ireland's premier University, for more than 24 years. As statutory officer and key member of the leadership team, he was accountable to the Board for the overall management of the University's financial affairs. Under his leadership, the finance team won numerous accolades for their innovations and achievements across Ireland and in the United Kingdom.

Professor Hamill was previously Director of the Learning Division at the Emirates Institute for Banking and Financial Studies in the United Arab Emirates and has held senior academic roles at leading Irish universities including Queen's University Belfast, Ulster University and the Institute of Banking – University College Dublin (IOB-UCD).

Professor Waqar Ahmad, Chancellor at ADU, commented, “It gives me great pleasure to welcome our newest members on board. With their extensive experience and proven track records, we are confident that they will add great value and assist us in achieving our ambitious goals for growth, enhanced reputation and outstanding student success.”

Professor Ahmad added, “Appointing outstanding leaders at the top of their fields is of the utmost importance to ADU to help us achieve our strategic objectives. They join a strong leadership team, which has recently been strengthened by the appointment of Professor Christos Pitelis (Dean of the College of Business), among other academic and administrative leaders. Students are at the heart of everything we do at ADU, and these appointments will ensure that our resources and people enable outstanding success and an unparalleled student experience'.

Mr. Mathews commented, “While it was a pleasure and privilege to work at Ireland's premier University, I am honored to be joining one of the region's top universities. I am excited to be working alongside students, administrative, and academic teams at ADU and relish the challenges ahead. I am joining a highly ambitious institution that continues to invest in its future, as evidenced by its AED 300 million purpose-built campus in Al Ain and its new campus in Dubai.”

Mr. Mathews is a chartered accountant, having trained with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Dublin. He holds a bachelor's in commerce and a diploma in professional accounting. He is also a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland. 

Professor Hamill commented, “I'm delighted to join Abu Dhabi University and look forward to working with my colleagues to deliver an exceptional educational experience. With the support of ADU's management and our student-first approach, my job will be to ensure that our students achieve their full potential and on graduation are ready to transform the world.”
