Over the past twenty years Paul Posoli has been recognized as a leader in the energy industry; he served as President of Bear Sterns energy trading business, President of Calpine Energy Services, and most recently as Managing Director of JP Morgan’s Global Commodities Group. Mr. Posoli came to Houston by way of Chicago, where he received his Masters in Business Administration from the Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern University. Raised in Tampa, Florida, Mr. Posoli attended Tampa Jesuit High School and graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelors in Business Administration.

In 2009, after hearing Fr. TJ Martinez, SJ speak about Cristo Rey Jesuit – an innovative, game-changing high school that combines a rigorous college prep program with a salaried paying job – Mr. Posoli decided to get involved. Mr. Posoli first served as an integral member of Cristo Rey Jesuit’s Capital Campaign which raised over $22 million for the capital and scholarship needs of establishing Cristo Rey Jesuit – the only high school in the city that exclusively serves Houston’s children living at or below the federal poverty line. Shortly thereafter, he began to volunteer as a part-time faculty member teaching a First Impressions class to incoming freshmen and a Leadership class to seniors. Mr. Posoli has served on many boards including the I Have a Dream Foundation.

Paul served as Interim President from June 2014 until February 2015 at which time he was appointed as Cristo Rey Jesuit’s second President.
