Frank Neville’s tenure as president at Millsaps College is officially underway.

Neville, who comes to the private liberal arts school in Jackson from Georgia Tech, began his duties on Monday. He previously served as senior vice president of strategic initiatives and chief of staff under Georgia Tech President Ángel Cabrera.

“I am absolutely thrilled to join the Millsaps community,” Neville said after the Millsaps College Board of Trustees selected him last January. “I am tremendously inspired by Millsaps’ student-centric, mission-driven philosophy and look forward to moving the college resolutely forward Ad Excellentiam (in pursuit of excellence).”

At Georgia Tech, Neville developed and implemented the university’s strategic plan, led efforts to improve administrative services, and implemented a culture change program to align leadership, performance, and policies with their strategic values. He also co-led the design of the Tech Square real estate expansion and created the Arts Square programmatic plan.

Before Georgia Tech, Neville served as chief of staff and vice president of communications and marketing at George Mason University. Neville was vice president for global communication and public affairs at the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University before joining George Mason.

In addition to his work in higher education, Neville was a career diplomat for the State Department. He served in Taipei, Chengdu, Guatemala City, Beijing, and Nogales.

Neville is a cum laude graduate of Carleton College in political science, and he holds an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management.

Neville succeeds Rob Pearigen, who stepped down to serve as president of Sewanee: The University of the South.
