Financial Planning & Analysis welcomes Andrew McGehee

Andrew McGehee
Andrew McGehee has joined FP&A in the role of Senior Financial Analyst. McGehee comes to FP&A from the Office of Sponsored Programs, where he served as a Post Award Accountant for over two years.

In his new role, he will work with our stakeholders in schools and units to perform cost analysis for the facilities and administrative rate (better known as the "F&A rate").

McGehee earned his BS in Business, Accounting and Information Systems from Virginia Tech in 2011, and is currently pursuing an MBA in Business Administration from James Madison University. He was spurred to pursue a spot on the FP&A team in order to use his financial background in public accounting a little more fully.

"Public accounting gave me a great base for understanding what goes into an organization's finances, and I'm glad I can use those skills in this role to help UVA Finance," he said.

McGehee had some exposure to the F&A process in OSP; in FP&A, he will help prepare the F&A rate proposal for the federal government, a task he looks forward to.

"I am excited to analyze the financial data and work on such a big project," he said.

"The work we do has a tremendous impact on the research community and the University as a whole."

When he's not focused on work or school, McGehee enjoys spending time with his wife and their 11-month-old, as well as fishing, hiking, and kayaking.
