The AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) has announced that Amir Mesarwi, MBA, has been promoted to the role of chief financial and administrative officer, effective immediately. Bernard Jarvis previously held this role prior to his retirement earlier this month.

In his new role, Mesarwi oversees all AAMC financial operations, including the accounting, business services, financial systems, procurement, budget, and payroll functions. As the association's financial steward, he ensures that the association has adequate resources to carry out its missions. He is responsible for the AAMC’s operating and capital budgets, investment portfolio, and real estate and facilities.

“Amir brings an excellent background and a wide variety of experience to the role, and I am delighted to welcome him to the AAMC’s leadership team,” said David J. Skorton, MD, AAMC president and CEO. “I’m confident in his leadership and grateful for his enormously effective work at the AAMC and the tremendous respect he has earned throughout the association and beyond.”

Mesarwi joined the AAMC in 2010 as the director of financial analysis and budget before being promoted in 2014 to senior director of financial planning and analysis and procurement. Prior to joining the AAMC, he served as a senior consultant with Grant Thornton and Applied Value. Mesarwi earned his MBA from New York University Leonard N. Stern School of Business and his BS in chemical engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
