The mission of the Expert-in-Residence Program at Shenandoah University is to enhance the academic excellence of the Shenandoah University School of Business through the practical experience of its team of highly experienced business executives. As a faculty, we believe students deserve a school that has built strong relationships with the business community and assists them in their transition into the business world.
J. Knox Singleton, the newly retired chief executive officer of Inova, has joined the school as its healthcare executive-in-residence.
On April 6, 2018, Singleton retired from his position at Inova, the Washington, D.C., region’s leading not-for-profit health care system that serves more than two million people annually.
Singleton joined Inova in 1983, taking it from a three-hospital, $500 million organization to a $3.5 billion health care system with five hospitals and more than 100 ambulatory service locations. Inova is considered a leader in genomics and personalized health, which uses an individual’s genetic makeup to predict and prevent disease.
Inova and Shenandoah have a relationship that spans more than 20 years, including Inova’s commitment to invest $5 million to support Shenandoah-led educational programs at the Inova Center for Personalized Health in Fairfax, Virginia, including programs in public health and nursing.
Singleton, who was named CEO of the year in 2015 by the Washington Business Journal, also gives back to communities locally and abroad, serving on a number of boards, and as the co-founder of both the Global Good Fund and the Community Coalition for Haiti, for which he is also a past president.
Singleton is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of North Carolina, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration in 1970. He received a master’s degree in Health Administration from Duke University in 1973.
Businessman Dan Kaseman is bringing his industry knowledge to the Shenandoah University School of Business as its newest executive in residence.
The Shenandoah students are as bright and driven as any I have encountered. It’s an honor to work in this high-energy environment. I hope I can give them some real-world experience and help them build confidence.”

In 1987 Dan founded The Kaseman Companies, a diverse group of engineering, technical, professional, IT, security, construction and staffing firms with close to 300 employees around the world.

After the sale of The Kaseman Companies in 2008, he purchased Middleburg Real Estate. As managing partner and co-owner of Middleburg Real Estate and the new brand of Atoka Properties – a residential and commercial real estate brokerage firm, he oversaw growth from one office with 4 agents to four offices with over 70 agents serving Northern Virginia and the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.
Upon the sale of his interest in Middleburg Real Estate in 2018, Dan began Kaseman Capital Partners which owns, operates and invests in real estate projects and properties.
He serves on the board of NOVA Parks, which oversees 13,000 acres of parkland in Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties and the cities of Alexandria, Falls Church and Fairfax.

He resides in Purcellville, Virginia with his wife, Dr. Theresa Fahy and has two grown children, Mac and Erin.
He has handled topics such as introduction to management, globalization, communications, marketing, team building, opportunity, career advancement/graduate degrees and more. He was also part of the Shenandoah team that went to PyeongChang, South Korea, for the Winter Olympics and has visited corporate management for the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates. He has also been part of Shenandoah’s Leadership and Mentoring Program (LAMP), mentoring students for the past three years.
I selected Shenandoah because of the welcoming and professional atmosphere, and I have been treated as a real asset. After being here, it’s the engagement with the students that drives me. I love it when they seek me out for advice.”
