Victor Reinoso (SFS '91) will return to the Hilltop as Georgetown's senior adviser for new project development, the university announced in a press release Thursday.
Reinoso will be a direct adviser to University President John J. DeGioia and Chief Financial Officer Chris Augostini. According to the press release, Reinoso will specialize in "innovations in international education, distance learning and long-term strategic development in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area."
"We are pleased to welcome Victor back to the university community," Augostini said in the press release. "Victor's more than 15 years of experience in senior leadership positions in government and the private sector will serve the community well as he helps to implement new strategic opportunities for Georgetown."
Reinoso majored in humanities and international affairs at Georgetown and also holds an MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Management.
In his professional life, Reinoso has spent time working in the private sector as a consultant at AOL and Inter-American Development Bank and as chief executive officer at RadioFutura.
He transitioned to public life in recent years, serving as the deputy mayor of Washington, D.C., under Mayor Adrian Fenty from 2007 to 2010. In that position, he was often viewed as a silent presence behind the more vocal Fenty and former D.C. schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee. De'Shawn Wright, who was appointed by Mayor Vincent Gray, replaced him under the new mayoral administration.
