Provost (pronounced Provo) leads the institution’s finance and budget office, facilities, capital planning, dining operations, information technology, and business services.

Provost was instrumental in creating Champlain College’s first comprehensive master plan, which created a road map for its projected growth and needs for the next 10 to 15 years. He led efforts to finance and develop 10 new key facilities, including academic space, an admission and welcome center, resident halls, and student apartments. During Provost’s tenure, Champlain’s operating revenue grew by more than 300 percent, and it delivered an operating surplus all 12 years.

Before joining Champlain College in 2005, Provost spent 12 years at the North American division of Dynastar, the French winter sports company owned by Rossignol, first as CFO and later as CEO. Provost spent much of his time at Dynastar in Chamonix, France, and Venice, Italy, at the world headquarters for Dynastar skis and Lange ski boots, developing the company’s international strategies. A CPA, he worked for the accounting firm Deloitte in Boston from 1986 to 1991. He is a graduate of Saint Michael’s College.
