John McClaflin, Chief Financial Officer at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan., has been named Vice President for Finance and Operations and Treasurer at William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo.

“We are pleased to welcome John to our administrative team at William Jewell,” said Dr. David Sallee, president of the college. “He brings with him a strong business background as well as outstanding success in finance and operations.”

McClaflin served as CFO at Benedictine for five years after spending much of his career in the insurance industry. His work in that industry included serving as Vice President and Director of Accounting Operations for Old American Insurance Company (1988-1991) and Assistant Treasurer and Treasury Manager/Policy Accounting Director for Americo Life (1991-2002). McClaflin has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Iowa and an M.B.A. from Benedictine College. He is a Certified Public Accountant and had completed additional study at the Henry W. Bloch School of Business and Public Administration at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. McClaflin resides at Weatherby Lake, Mo.

“I believe that William Jewell College is a tremendous asset to the region,” McClaflin said. “I look forward to serving the college as the institution plans for the future and continues to enhance its solid reputation as a highly respected liberal arts college.”

While at Benedictine, McClaflin was part of the team that launched a major capital campaign and completed several multi-million dollar construction and renovation projects. He participated in the completion of a 10-year campus master plan and in the redesign of the college’s technology infrastructure.

With its challenging academic culture and focus on student achievement, William Jewell College promises students an outstanding liberal arts education that cultivates leadership, service, and spiritual growth within a community inspired by Christian ideals and committed to open, rigorous intellectual pursuits.
