RADNOR, Pa. (Sept. 22, 2016)—Cabrini University appointed Brian Eury Chief of Staff for the University. He will serve in this role in addition to his current position as Vice President for Community Development and External Relations at Cabrini.
As the Chief of Staff, Eury will serve as the principal aide to Cabrini University President Donald B. Taylor, PhD. He will handle a wide range of institutional matters on behalf of Taylor and serve as the President’s main liaison with a variety of internal and external constituencies.

“This is the right time for a Chief of Staff and Brian is the ideal candidate,” said Taylor. “While I increase my time in the community to further build the Cabrini name, I am confident that Brian will fully ensure that the operational initiatives of the University continue to progress and that the Office of the President continues to function at a high level.”
