Clayton Spencer, president of Bates College, stated, “We are very fortunate that Geoff will be joining Bates in this key position. He comes with a reputation as a creative financial strategist who is also highly effective as a day-to-day manager. He is known as an open communicator, collaborator with faculty and staff colleagues, and an exceptionally dedicated team builder. I am thrilled that we will have the benefit of Geoff’s financial and organizational leadership as we work together to map our institutional priorities and develop the resources to support them.”

Swift is also looking forward to his new role at Bates College. He said, “I am eager to work for Bates at such an important time for the liberal arts. And I am humbled to be a part of the rich Bates history. The staff that supports the student and faculty experience is remarkable and very welcoming—it feels like a homecoming to be joining a residential college community again, this time as a professional.”

Swift will also look over the long-range financial planning and annual budget, as well as the facilities services, dining and events, human resources, and capital planning and construction departments.
