Richard E. Carter
Richard Carter has been president of City University of Seattle since July 2013. Prior to being named the sixth President of City University of Seattle and moving to the Pacific Northwest, Richard Carter served in a variety of executive capacities for National University and the National University System. Most recently, he served the dual role of Vice Chancellor, Business Operations for the National University System and Executive Vice President of Business and Regional Operations for National University. In these roles, Mr. Carter led National's Regional Operations in its efforts related to advance recruitment, enrollment, outreach, community relationships, articulation, and retention. He also provided leadership in Business Operations for the areas of finance, human resources, facilities, and financial aid. Preceding his work at National University, Richard led an extensive career as the chief executive at San Diego-based Titan Corporation, where he turned around the operation and sold it to Datron Advanced Technologies-Mobile Electronics Division. In addition, Richard was a chief executive at Radiac, Inc.; Signet Armorlite, Inc.; and Richardson Vicks, Inc. In each of these companies, Richard was able to help the organizations achieve the efficiencies and success they needed to prosper. Richard's deep background and proven results in business and academics are major reasons he was selected and approved by the Board of Trustees to serve as CityU's sixth President. Richard and his wife are delighted to call the Seattle area their new home, and look forward to getting to know the Pacific Northwest landscape and community.
