Stocks in this article: APOL

Apollo Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: APOL) today announced that J. Mitchell Bowling has been appointed to serve as the company’s new chief operating officer, effective December 2, 2013. Mr. Bowling will report directly to Apollo Group Chief Executive Officer Greg Cappelli.

“After a long and comprehensive search, I’m very pleased to welcome Mitch to the Apollo family,” commented Mr. Cappelli. “Mitch is a seasoned executive with an extensive background driving positive results. He will be an important part of our senior executive team, helping us execute on our strategic plan to differentiate University of Phoenix, diversify Apollo Group and drive operational excellence throughout our organization.”

Mr. Bowling has held senior leadership roles at industry-leading companies, including Comcast Corporation and The Hertz Corporation. He most recently served as senior vice president and general manager, new businesses, at Comcast, where he led the company’s entry into the emerging home security and home automation space. Prior to that role, Mr. Bowling served as senior vice president and general manager of online services where, during his tenure, Comcast grew to become the largest residential Internet service provider in America.

“I am passionate about making education accessible to people who want to improve their skills and thrive in the global economy,” said Mr. Bowling. “Apollo is an international leader in the field, and I am eager to help advance the company’s goals and help meet the nation’s need for more highly educated and skilled workers.”

Mr. Cappelli also thanked Curt Uehlein, president of Apollo Global, for stepping into the chief operating officer role on an interim basis this past summer and fall, adding, “Curt is tremendously talented, and his hard work helped solidify our strategic objectives and operationalize our new goal-setting process and budget process for fiscal 2014. We are fortunate to have someone of his caliber on our team and excited that he will continue his important role as president of Apollo Global, where he will focus on expanding our international capabilities and growth.”
