Brian Evans, administrative vice president, to speak at Oct. 16 devotional

Brian Evans, BYU administrative vice president and chief financial officer, is scheduled to speak at the Devotional Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 11:05 a.m. in the Marriott Center.

The event will be broadcast live on KBYU-TV (Channel 11), KBYU-FM (89.1), BYU Television, BYU Radio and at byubroadcasting.org. For rebroadcast information, visit byubroadcasting.org.

Evans joined the university administration seven years ago, serving as chief financial officer and adding vice presidential duties in 2006. He was a partner with Arthur Andersen, one of the "Big Five" accounting firms at the time. Tiring of the corporate lifestyle, he left the firm without having another job lined up.

Evans has expressed a strong belief in the mission of BYU. "I think this is the most extraordinary university in the world," he has said. "This is an astonishing place and is a testament of the Church's dedication to young people and higher education."
