With more than 30 years of financial, accounting and management experience, William McGee of Sunbury, Ohio, has joined Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf as assistant vice president for Finance and Budget. He began his new position March 20.

McGee, an RIT/NTID alumnus and Certified Public Accountant, most recently worked for the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, helping to streamline and centralize service and defense agency functions into a consolidated process.

While serving as the director of Disbursing Operations for DFAS, McGee oversaw a $200 billion annual disbursing operation service for the military and defense agencies, ensuring strong systems of internal control over assets and reconciliation with the U.S. Treasury.

In his new role, McGee will be responsible for financial reporting; financial and operations policy and procedure for the financial sustainability of NTID; budget preparation and monitoring of the college’s budget. He will report directly to the president of NTID and will serve as the college’s principal financial officer.

“I am pleased to welcome alumnus Bill McGee ‘back home’ to RIT/NTID,” said Gerard Buckley, NTID president and RIT vice president and dean. “His background and contributions with the federal government will be an asset to our college and the greater university.”
