Grove City College announced today the appointment of Michael R. Buckman ’82 as Vice President for Business and Finance. He succeeds Roger Towle ’68, who retired last year as Vice President for Financial Affairs after 21 years of service.
In this newly-restructured role, Buckman will serve as an officer of the College and as a member of the senior leadership team, providing direct support to the Office of the President, and the Board of Trustees and its key committees. He will be responsible for a wide range of enterprise matters including financial planning and analysis, budget development, investment management and revenue stream, in addition to human resources and the implementation of best practices across the organization.
“We welcome Mike and look forward to the benefit of his experience, leadership and unique gifts as Grove City College continues to meet the many challenges in higher education today,” President Paul J. McNulty ’80 said. “He knows our College and the stakeholders we serve. I am confident that Grove City College will be in good stead as a result of his commitment to our vision, mission, and values.”
Buckman graduated with a degree in accounting and earned an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh in 1990. Throughout his career, he has served in progressively responsible financial positions including accountant, investor relations, controller, and for the last 15 years, chief financial officer primarily in the financial services industry.
He and his wife Nancy (Elsner ’81) Buckman reside in Pittsburgh’s North Hills.
