David P. Myron, CPA, assumes the position of vice president for finance and administration at Mercyhurst University, according to an announcement today by Mercyhurst President Michael Victor. Myron comes to Mercyhurst from Seton Hill University, where he served in the same capacity for the past three years.
Victor said Myron brings nine years of public accounting experience, 22 years of nonprofit experience and three years of higher education experience to his new role at Mercyhurst. Myron will lead all of the institution’s business and financial affairs; serve as a key member of the university’s leadership team; and provide support and analysis in strategic planning efforts.
“We fully expect David to help Mercyhurst University transform into an institution that plans for and executes smart financial management across our academic and institutional operations,” Victor said. “We look forward to welcoming him to our college community.”
Previous to his tenure as chief financial officer at Seton Hill University, Myron was in management from 1991 to 2013 at the largest economic development organization in Pennsylvania - the Regional Industrial Development Corporation (RIDC) in Pittsburgh. He began as controller, then treasurer, with the last 14 years of his tenure serving as vice president and treasurer.
Earlier in his career (1982-1991), he was staff accountant and audit senior manager at the Pittsburgh office of KPMG, an international audit, tax and advisory firm.
Myron earned his Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and English at St. Francis University in Loretto. He holds numerous certifications and is active in community service, serving on multiple boards, particularly in the areas of economic and community development.
“I am excited about this opportunity to steward and enhance the financial, operational, human resources and administration of the university while applying my personal integrity, work ethic, and commitment to the Catholic mission as well as to the values and vision of the university,” Myron said.
