New CFO for Archdiocese of Philadelphia

    The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has announced . . . no, not the decision on the appeals of the Catholic high schools set to close (that’s later today).

    It’s the appointment of a new chief financial officer.

    Timothy O’Shaughnessy, 48, will officially step into the role April 16. He’s been CFO at St. Joseph’s Preparatory School since 2008 and before that worked for Aramark and the Business, Sports and Entertainment Group.

    “We face many financial challenges right now and going forward, and I’m grateful to have Tim O’Shaughnessy’s skills as Chief Financial Officer,” Archbishop Charles Chaput said in the announcement.


    O’Shaughnessy has degrees from La Salle and Wharton, was a Pennsylvania CPA, is on the audit committee for Holy Family University, is a board member of the Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School and is a director of Polonia Bank.

    He lives in West Chester with his wife and five kids.
