Mincey Professor of Accounting Endowment established

The Morehead State University Foundation has announced the establishment of the Mincey Professor of Accounting Endowment. The endowment was established in 2017 with a contribution of $100,000 by Wayne Mincey (79). The investment proceeds from the endowment will be used to support the work and research of a named professorship of accounting in MSU’s School of Business Administration. 

Mincey has had a successful career in strategy, operations, finance, business development, and mergers and acquisitions for nearly 40 years in North America, Europe and Asia. His professional experience ranges from start-up ventures to $5 billion public companies. He retired as executive chairman of Market Track, LLC, the last company he led, in 2017. Currently, he serves as a senior advisor to Norwest Venture Partners, as a board director for multiple PE-backed companies and is directly involved in several start-up endeavors. Mincey was recently inducted into the 2019 Alumni Hall of Fame during MSU Homecoming this past October.  He currently resides in the suburbs of Atlanta with his wife Cindy.   

Mincey earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting at MSU. He said the advice given to him from the late John Alcorn, certified public accountant (C.P.A.) and former MSU professor of accounting, helped guide both his academic and professional journey.  

“He said, if you’re going to go into business at least if you go into accounting, you will know the language of business from day one, and nothing could have been truer,” Mincey said. “I felt like that turned out to be one of the greatest things for my career is when I got that start in accounting.”
