NASHVILLE, T.N. – The Coalition for College Cost Savings (CCCS) today announced a successful culmination to its presidential search, naming Harry Goldberg as president. Goldberg brings significant business experience and knowledge of higher education to this position. Prior to joining CCCS, Goldberg served in the roles of vice president of business development, marketing and customer success at ESM Solutions, a leading provider of electronic procurement solutions for higher education, public sector and K-12. Previously, he spent much of his career in increasingly responsible positions with the Unisys Corporation, formerly Burroughs.”The CCCS Board’s search committee was unanimous in selecting Harry to position the Coalition as a known and recognized leader in process innovation and change,” said Dr. Diane Berty, chairman of the CCCS Board. “Moving forward, collaboration and cost savings will be more important than ever to our membership, and we believe that Harry brings the skills and experience necessary to lead us in that direction.”

Goldberg is only the second leader of CCCS and will succeed David Jones, the founding executive director. The coalition was initially launched seven years ago, under Jones’ guidance, as a visionary effort to leverage the collective economic strength of private colleges and universities to improve business processes and practices.

“We would not be where we are today if not for the dedicated and successful leadership of David Jones,” said Dr. Berty.  “The Board and Membership thank David for his tireless service and wish him well in retirement.”

Goldberg new position is effective immediately. He lives on Kiawah Island, South Carolina with his wife Ruth, an attorney and designer. They have two adult daughters, Sarah and Jennifer.
