Hello everyone.

My name is Gary Hypes. I have been teaching in higher education for over a decade at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. I teach primarily in the field of accounting. However, I have taught several business related courses such as management, law, marketing, finance, economics, business ethics, etc.

Prior to my teaching career, I worked in several different positions. To name a few: CFO, commercial lender, analyst, internal auditor, etc.

I graduated from West Liberty State College with a B.S. in Accounting in 1994. I graduated from West Virginia College of Law with a J.D. in 2003. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a M.B.A. in November 2014. My future educational plans centers on a Ph.D. in accounting and various certifications.

I currently hold a license as a CPA in the State of West Virginia and Pennsylvania, a CFE from the ACFE and CGMA from the AICPA.

I am currently a member of the AICPA, PICPA, and IMA.

I enjoy riding my Harley Davidson Softail Custom & Street Glide and always look forward to my annual cross country bike trip every June. My wife and I have rode our motorcycle in all fifty state and are considering whether to write a book about our adventures.

I also enjoy the sport of wrestling, gardening, walking, reading, and wood crafting.

I look forward to meeting and working with each of you in the future.

Thank you.

Professor Hypes
