Trinity University is bidding farewell to one of its most trusted and respected leaders, Gary Logan, vice president for Finance and Administration, who has announced his retirement after more than 20 years of service to the Trinity community. His last day will be May 31, 2024.
As the University’s Chief Financial Officer, Logan has led the University’s financial forecasting, modeling, and business operations. He has overseen budgeting, the University endowment, facilities services, human resources, conferences and special programs, information technology services, project portfolio planning and the Trinity University Police Department.
“My work here has been a true labor of love,” Logan says. “This is an institution like no other, and it has been an honor to contribute to its financial and administrative success.”
Much of Logan’s work is also visible through his extensive stewardship of signature projects across campus, including the construction of the Center for the Sciences and Innovation and Dicke Hall and the purchase of City Vista. He also oversaw renovations to the Chapman Center; Halsell Center; the Bell Center; the football, softball, and baseball fields; and most all of the residence halls. Logan also oversaw development of the first campus master plan in 40 years, and he helped launch the University’s current Digital Transformation initiative.
“I cannot overstate the impact Gary Logan has had on this institution,” says Vanessa B. Beasley, Ph.D., Trinity University president. “In every area under his purview, Trinity has advanced wisely, effectively, and always with an eye towards the University's full potential.”
Logan received his Bachelor of Business Administration from Texas Tech University in 1984 and has been licensed as a Certified Public Accountant since 1987. He began his career at Trinity University in February 1988 as the controller before leaving to become the associate vice president for Finance for Southwestern University. Logan returned to Trinity in July 2012 as the vice president for Finance and Administration.
Trinity will conduct a national search next spring to identify the University’s next vice president for Finance and Administration.
