Meet New VP of Finance and Business David Gray
Penn State announced on Tuesday that David Gray was named senior vice president for Finance and Business, a position previously held by Gary Schultz who faces charges for perjury stemming from the Sandusky scandal.
According to Penn State, Gray will “oversee the offices of Physical Plant, Human Resources, University Police, Investment Management, Auxiliary and Business Services, Corporate Controller, Legal Services and Commonwealth Campus Business Operations, as well as lead financial, endowment, business and administrative activities at all Penn State campuses.” By now, most people are well aware of the University Police responsibility after Gary Schultz faced criticism for his alleged mishandling of Jerry Sandusky’s investigation when it came to his attention in 2002.
Gray has spent the last eleven years working for the University of Massachusetts in various roles, most recently as the chief financial and administrative officer. He has also served on the House Education Committee Republican Research Staff for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and as a member of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
Pending approval from the Board of Trustees in January, Gray will return home to his Alma Mater. He graduated from Penn State in 1977 with a political science degree and also earned a master of public administration degree here in 1979.
