USM hires Patrick N. Hogan to lead governmental relations

University System of Maryland Chancellor Robert L. Caret has appointed Patrick N. Hogan as the system’s vice chancellor for government relations. Hogan, a former member of the Maryland House of Delegates and the brother of Gov. Larry Hogan, will join the university system on Nov. 30.

“Patrick Hogan brings a wealth of experience to this position,” said Caret. “He served in the Maryland General Assembly for eight years, earning a reputation for working effectively across party lines to get things done. I am confident that his deep knowledge of Maryland government and legislative processes will serve the University System of Maryland well in the years ahead. I am pleased to welcome him to my team.”

Hogan will succeed Patrick J. (PJ) Hogan (no relation), who left the vice chancellor position Sept. 30 to join Cornerstone Government Affairs.

As vice chancellor for government relations, Hogan will be the chief adviser to Caret and the USM Board of Regents on governmental relations policies and strategies, on both the state and federal levels. In addition, he will chair USM’s State Relations Council, comprising government relations officers from the system’s 12 institutions.

“I’m excited for this opportunity to work with my new USM colleagues, my former legislative colleagues, and the state’s executive branch to help the university system thrive as it works to move our state forward,” said Hogan.

For the past 10 months, Hogan has served as deputy legislative officer for Maryland’s Office of the Governor. Prior to that position, Hogan was vice president of business development for the Hogan Companies, a group of real estate services companies.

Hogan served in the Maryland House of Delegates from 2011-2015, and earlier from 2003-2007. Between his two legislative terms, he was director of development for the YMCA of Frederick County.
