Catherine Flickinger, J.D., a former executive at a leading media company, joins NYIT as general counsel.

Flickinger was previously executive vice president and general counsel at magazine publisher and media giant, Hachette Filipacchi Media, where she headed the legal and human resources departments for over 20 years. Before that, she served as associate general counsel for broadcast media company CBS, Inc., after starting her career as a litigation associate for a leading law firm, Cravath, Swaine & Moore. In 2004, she was named one of 40 Outstanding Women of the Bar by the New York County Lawyers’ Association.

“I was attracted to this new career challenge in the field of higher education by President Guiliano’s vision for NYIT,” said Flickinger.
“I hope to contribute to that vision by drawing on my expertise in intellectual property and structuring new ventures.” 

Flickinger, the chief legal officer for NYIT, serves as a chief advisor to the president. In addition to contracts and litigation, she oversees policies, practices, and procedures throughout the university’s departments. She also ensures that intellectual property from research is successfully developed and protected.

“Catherine’s impressive background and sound judgment will help guide NYIT through new endeavors at our New York and global campuses, medical school with our clinical sites, online programs, athletics program, and much more,” said NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D.

Flickinger earned her J.D. from Columbia University School of Law, and her bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
