Marist President

Kevin Weinman

Kevin C. Weinman joined Marist College as its fifth president on Oct. 4, 2021.  Weinman’s academic and professional careers combine scholarship in the history of urban planning and public policy with extensive financial and administrative leadership in the private and higher education sectors. A hands-on leader, he has great passion for the powerful blend of liberal arts education, pre-professional and professional training, and graduate research and scholarship that are the hallmarks of a Marist education. 

He has prioritized access, equity, and inclusion throughout his career. In December 2021, Weinman and his wife Beth made a personal pledge to support programs to make a Marist education more accessible and equitable for a diverse and talented group of students. Also during his first year as president, he led the recruitment of a diverse and dynamic cohort of 24 new faculty, the largest in the College’s history. In May 2022, Weinman initiated a new strategic planning process for the College to build upon Marist’s strong foundation while articulating a bold and ambitious vision for the future. 

Weinman came to Marist after serving for over eight years as chief financial and administrative officer at Amherst College. There he set strategy and led operations for finance, investments, shared services, and information technology, as well as leading the operational elements of the college’s Covid-19 response. The transparent and inclusive financial planning and budgeting processes he instituted helped the college make significant progress in the enrollment of talented students from low-income backgrounds and achieve key priorities in student life and wellbeing; diversity, equity, and inclusion; academic support; new academic and residential facilities; and a comprehensive climate action plan.

Prior to joining Amherst, Weinman led various financial operations at Dartmouth College, first serving as director of financial planning and budget from 2007 to 2010 and then as assistant vice president of finance from 2010 to 2013.

Before deciding to pursue a career in higher education, Weinman held several finance and marketing roles at Hewlett-Packard, Agilent Technologies, Deluxe Corp., and Western Union. He began his career in public accounting, is a former certified public accountant, and has presented at national conferences on the topics of risk management, strategic planning, and financial modeling.  

A first-generation college student, Weinman earned a Ph.D. in History from the University of New Hampshire, an M.A. in History from the University of Colorado–Colorado Springs, and an M.B.A. from the Kenan–Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill. He received a B.B.A. from the University of Notre Dame, majoring in Accounting and History. Weinman has taught courses on modern American history and the rise of the suburbs to both college-aged and nontraditional students. 

Weinman is a native New Yorker who grew up in northern New Jersey.  His wife Beth grew up in Southern Pines, North Carolina, and earned both a B.S.B.A., majoring in Business, and a Master’s in Accounting from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill. They have two children, Alex and Brooke.
