Tim Griffy, a partner with EY, Speaker was recognized at this year’s MPA commencement ceremony by the Department of Accounting as its 2014 Texas Star. Each year, The Texas Star Award honors a friend of the department and programs in recognition of his or her continuing support.
Tim championed our EY Accounting Ambassadors Program to the Ernst & Young Foundation, which has been incredibly successful in its first year due to his and EY’s support. Through his vision and advocacy for increased diversity, Tim utilized his leadership skills to enlist EY professionals as mentors to the Program, an important benefit of the group. In addition, Tim has given his time to the Department as an active member of the Advisory Council since Fall 2011.
“The faculty, staff and students of the McCombs School Department of Accounting are extremely grateful for Tim’s contributions,” says Department Chair Lillian Mills. “We are proud to call him a true friend.”
It is with pride and honor that we congratulate Tim Griffy on being selected as the 2014 Department of Accounting Texas Star.
