Oklahoma City University has hired Kevan Buck as its new chief financial officer, effective Monday, Nov. 2. Buck brings with him an impressive background with extensive finance experience in higher education.

Buck comes to OCU after 20 years as the University of Tulsa’s executive vice president and treasurer. In this position, he served as a liaison to the Board of Trustees and was responsible for managing all university assets, including TU’s and the Gilcrease Museum’s budgets. Both OCU and TU serve their respective communities as private institutions.

As CFO, Buck will report directly to OCU President Martha Burger and will oversee all areas of finance and university facilities. He will be responsible for budget oversight and guiding the university’s financial position and long-range financial strategies.

“We are excited to welcome Kevan to Oklahoma City University and look forward to his impact on our institution,” President Burger said. “Kevan has an outstanding reputation and a wealth of experience in private higher education, and we are thrilled to have him join OCU’s executive leadership team.”

Buck holds an MBA from Wright State University in Ohio and a Bachelor of Science in Forestry from Michigan Technological University. He previously served as the vice president for business and finance at Wilmington College and comptroller for Ashland University, both in Ohio. “I am eager to join OCU, working with the president’s team to collaborate across all campus disciplines,” Buck said. “I have been impressed with what the existing business office staff has accomplished during a time of extreme industry stress. There is a solid framework for continued success.”
