American Public Education, Inc.

Mr. Sunderland, currently the APUS senior vice president of finance, has been appointed to succeed Mr. Wilkins as executive vice president and chief financial officer of APEI and APUS.

“For nearly ten years, Mr. Wilkins has served our institution with tremendous distinction – we have greatly benefited from his extensive financial, operational and business development experience,” stated Dr. Wallace E.
