Long-time Trinity Western University faculty member Kevin Sawatsky has been named the university’s new dean of the school of business.

He began his five-year term effective Aug. 16.

The role is a familiar one for Sawatsky who served as the founding dean for the school of business from 2001 to 2008. He has been a TWU faculty member since 1993 and most recently served as vice-provost (business), a role he has held since 2011.

“For 21 years, the school of business (formerly the faculty of business and economics) has been my professional home,” Sawatsky said.

“Over those years, I have developed a love for the school of business and have a deep desire to see it grow and flourish.”

Sawatsky takes over for Andrea Soberg, who has serves as dean since 2008.

“I believe that the school of business is now well positioned to expand and grow,” Sawatsky said.

“I’m happy to be able to serve another term as dean and work with the faculty, alumni, and business leaders to see that growth occur.”

Sawatsky has also been one of the principle champions for the establishment of a school of law at TWU.

“Kevin remains committed to the success of the school of law and will continue to provide counsel on a limited part-time basis,” said TWU provost W. Robert Wood.
