Associate Athletics Director for Business Operations

Steve Pritzker is in his third year as the associate athletics director for business operations and the chief financial officer (CFO) for the University of Virginia athletics department.

In addition to supervising the business operations staff and the manager of information systems, Pritzker serves as the financial adviser to the athletics department staff and coordinates the implementation and management of the department's operating budget. He serves as the department's primary liaison to the University's audit, budget, financial administration and procurement offices.

Pritzker returned to Virginia in 2013 after serving as the head rowing coach at Iowa. He spent the previous nine years as a member of Virginia's coaching staff, from 2004 to 2012. After volunteering with the rowing team during the 2004 season, while earning his master's degree in business administration, Pritzker assumed full-time coaching responsibilities in the fall of 2004. In 2007 he was promoted to associate head coach. While at Virginia, Pritzker helped guide the Cavaliers to NCAA team championships in 2010 and 2012, along with runner-up finishes in 2005 and 2007. He also coached the Varsity 4 to four individual National Championships, as well as three National runner-up finishes. Virginia won eight ACC titles in his nine seasons.

While working with the Cavaliers' rowing program, Pritzker supported the Athletic Department on finance and budgeting matters, including forecasting and achieving financial efficiencies. He worked directly with different units within the athletics department on budget management. He also developed risk analyses for long-term budget planning.

Pritzker's business background includes a two-year stint with Credit Suisse First Boston in New York City as a research sales analyst where he conducted research and financial analysis for major institutional clients. He also worked for two years for Kingdon Capital Management as an associate, developing valuation models to evaluate investments and advising portfolio managers.

A native of Alexandria, Va., Pritzker graduated from Yale and received his master's degree from UVa's Darden Graduate School of Business in 2005. He was selected as a Schwartz Research Fellow at Yale, while earning four varsity letters as a coxswain on the rowing team.

While a graduate student, Pritzker was selected as a resident for the Range in the historical Academical Village at UVa on the basis of his academic achievement and service to the University.
