UTEP Taps Alum to Lead Business Affairs Division

The University of Texas at El Paso officials announced the appointment of Mark McGurk as the University’s vice president for business affairs.

The UTEP alumnus oversees the University’s operating budget of roughly $500 million and advises campus leaders on the institution’s financial interests, such as controllership, financial planning and revenue cycle functions.

McGurk is responsible for managing the University’s balance sheet and capital structure, financial planning, financial reporting, budgeting and forecasting, audit activities, capital planning, and human resources.

“We are very pleased to welcome Mark McGurk as UTEP’s vice president for business affairs,” said UTEP President Diana Natalicio. “We are always delighted to welcome our UTEP graduates back to our campus. They return with an abundance of experience to share and a deep desire to serve. Mark’s extensive experience and leadership abilities will enhance the work of the Division of Business Affairs in support of UTEP’s access and excellence mission.”

McGurk is familiar with the University’s business operations. He started as a student assistant in the payroll office in 1992, and soon after received his Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting and finance from UTEP. He quickly ascended to become UTEP’s associate comptroller before leaving for Tucson, Arizona in 2003.

The alumnus served as the University of Arizona’s comptroller for nearly a decade. The institution promoted him to associate vice president and comptroller. During that time, he earned a Master of Educational Leadership in Higher Education Leadership from Northern Arizona University. From there, McGurk moved to The University of Texas of the Permian Basin in Odessa, Texas, where he was vice president for business affairs for three years.

Overall, McGurk has worked in higher education for more than 24 years and has more than 30 years of supervisory and managerial experience.

The seasoned administrator is confident that he has the knowledge and skills to make meaningful contributions to the University. He said President Natalicio has set the institution’s “tenor and tone” on a positive course for excellence.

“I’m very proud to be back at my own institution,” he said, adding that he takes pride in UTEP’s students and its graduates, who he has seen make a difference through their work. “Every single person at UTEP should be proud to be here to support the mission and what we are doing.”

McGurk first day on the job was July 16.
