“Trent is a widely respected leader with an extraordinary commitment to stewarding the University’s resources,” Cullinan said. “His forward-looking mindset, collaborative approach and commitment to Notre Dame’s mission make him an ideal person for this important leadership role.”
A Notre Dame alum, Grocock said he looks forward to working with his colleagues and being part of the Notre Dame legacy.
“I am humbled and honored and honored to be appointed to this role and afforded the opportunity to work with such a talented group of individuals,” Grocock said. “I look forward to the team building upon the financial foundation that has been established by our predecessors.”
