Minckler named vice president of finance/chief financial officer

 Texas Business reports:  STEPHENVILLE—Tye V. Minckler, currently the vice president for operations at the Medical College of Wisconsin, has been named Tarleton’s vice president for finance and administration/chief financial officer.

He succeeds Jerry Graham, who retired in May after serving 42 years at Tarleton in various capacities.

Minckler, 55, will assume his duties Aug. 6, pending approval of The Texas A&M University System board of regents.

“Mr. Minckler brings years of higher education and private business experience to Tarleton,” said president F. Dominic Dottavio in a prepared statement. “He is committed to serving faculty, staff and students in a collegial, collaborative and personable way. I have been impressed by his knowledge of Tarleton’s history, programs and people and his enthusiastic support of our vision, values and strategic goals. It will be a pleasure to have Tye and his wife, Katherine, as members of the Tarleton family.”

Prior to his position at the Medical College of Wisconsin, where he has served since 2007, Minckler was director of facilities development and management at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine from 2000-2007. He also was the chief financial officer at two companies, one of which was a software services start-up he cofounded.

He is a certified management accountant, and holds a master of business administration degree in finance from the University of Washington and a bachelor’s degree in molecular and cellular biology, also from the University of Washington.

His new position at Tarleton “is an honor and a privilege,” Minckler said in a statement. “That is a cliché, but this is a very visible leadership position for the university and the community, and I will have the privilege and responsibility of serving faculty, students and staff to help them succeed any way I can. That is a huge responsibility and I am absolutely committed to serving with distinction.”
