Gary Logan, the associate vice president for finance at Southwestern University, has been named Vice President for Finance and Administration at Trinity.
Logan, a certified public accountant, will serve as Trinity’s chief financial officer, providing leadership in the areas of budgeting, endowment management, purchasing, facilities services, human resources, and campus police, among other duties.
A financial management leader with 24 years of experience in private higher education, Logan has shown the ability to build strong interpersonal relationships and demonstrated proficiency in financial forecasting, modeling, and business operations management.
“Gary Logan is very experienced, knows Trinity and Texas very well, and is the right person to lead our finance group through a turbulent time in higher education,” said Trinity University President Dennis A. Ahlburg.
In discussing his views on financial management and planning in higher education, Logan said, “Great universities, like Trinity University, have enormous current and future potential to change lives and, in so doing, change our world for the better. Good financial management and planning should enhance, not hinder, the pursuit of this good, as embodied in the University’s mission.”
Logan has been at Southwestern since 1996. Before that, he was assistant controller and later controller at Trinity from 1988-96, and prior to that, he was a staff accountant at Arthur Young & Co. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Texas Tech University and was certified as a public accountant in 1987.
